It's not bogus. I have no idea why all these people are claiming "the science is changing" or whatever. The number of nutritionists/epidemiologists/heart disease/cancer researchers who support a diet high in red meat and saturated fat is probably quite equivalent to the number of climate scientists who don't believe that humans are partially responsible for global warming.
The evidence is pretty compelling that a diet high in animal protein, saturated fats, and in particular red meat is a risk factor for cancer, as well as heart disease. High sodium intake is a pretty big risk factor for heart disease.
