More Red Meat In Diet Tied Linked With Higher Risk of Premature Death
Increasing the red meat consumption can increase the risk of early death, as new study of people’s eating habits revealed.
So, those who increased their daily in take of red meat over an eight-year period are more likely to die.
When compared to those who did not increase their red meat consumption.
And just half in take per day more of red meat was associated with a 10% increased risk in premature death.
Also study has revealed that the link between red meat consumption and increased risk of death may be due to a combination of components which promote cardiometabolic disturbances.
Such as saturated fat, cholesterol, heme iron, preservatives, and carcinogenic compounds produced by high temperature cooking.
And eating red meat has also recently been linked to gut microbiota-derived metabolite trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) that might promote atherosclerosis.
However, study has also also shown that reducing red meat consumption while also increasing in take of nuts, fish, poultry without skin, dairy, eggs, whole grains or vegetables was associated with a lower risk of early death.

Processed Red Meat
A study published in the peer-reviewed British Medical Journal shows that at least half in take of processed red meat increased the risk of premature death by 13%
But the same amount of unprocessed red meat increased the risk by just 9%. So whether the red meat was processed matters.
Healthy Plant Foods
There will be reduced mortality when red meat is replaced with fish since they contain generally similar levels of proteins.
And Heather Fields to CNN that “We can now shift focus on which foods we can add to the diet to improve longevity and decrease risk of chronic diseases”
Also, replacing red and processed meats with other protein sources from Healthy Plant Foods has been linked with decreased risk of mortality.
