The study's sampling procedure and the description of the respondents were discussed. 15% of all respondents to this survey responded that they ate less beef in 1985 than in 1984. As thought, the main reason given for less consumption was the belief of the risks of red meat consumption. 90% of all respondents believed that stress, worry. smoking, obesity and heredity all were important players for the development of heart disease.
