134. You lose a taste for it, after awhile. I would gag if I tried to eat beef, which I gave up...
years ago. I still eat poultry and fish. But I'm cutting down on the poultry.

Years after giving up beef, I had sirloin steak on the brain. I really missed it. So I bought one and cooked it. It smelled sooooo good. I took a bite...then...gag. Awful. It tasted so heavy, like a clot of blood that had been cooked. I haven't had even the urge to eat beef since then.

BTW, I'm 57. Blood pressure about 110/57 or lower, depending on how much I'm walking and such. Cholesterol fluctuates somewhat, but always in range of 150. Blood sugar 80.

Beef, like cigarettes, has been linked to cancer, though not as directly. And the one thing in common in cultures where people die young or unhealthy is the eating of fast food and lots of beef or meat.
