Eating Less Red Meat Can Significantly Improve Health

Eating less red meat has been tied to improved health and lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, according to recent studies. A study from Harvard found significant benefits from eating red meat every other day, rather than every day. The research showed women who ate red meat twice a day had a 30 percent higher risk of developing heart disease than those who ate red meat three or four times a week. Other research found substituting one serving of red meat a day with nuts, grains, or low-fat dairy lowered the risk of type 2 diabetes by nearly 20 percent. Substituting nuts for red meat once a day was linked to a 30 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease, while substituting fish for red meat lowered the risk by 24 percent. More here.
