    It's not...as a moderate part of your diet. The body needs protein (among other things) which is supplied in large part by animal protein.

    Meat has the potential to be harmful. Red meats are considered to be more of concern than white meats. With the book, The China Study, the connection to countries that consume large quantities of animal protein and cancer is discussed. A diet high in plant proteins (of which quinoa is a perfect protein) is recommended over one high in animal proteins. Even before the china study, Red meats have come under fire by those concerned with healthful eating, by medical professionals, and dietary professionals.

    Anything can be "bad" for you, it all depends on the amount/ concentration you consume.
    It is true that meats may have hormones and antibiotics in them, but on the flip-side, many vegetarian products sold in supermarkets are riddled with MSG and many other unhealthy additives.

    I know healthy and unhealthy people who eat meat as well as the same for vegan/vegetarians. "Bad" is just a matter of perspective.
