I was very interested to see this article on the BBC website this week on a study from Harvard University: ‘Sausage not steak’ increases heart disease risk of particular interest was this key quote:
“the lifestyle factors associated with eating unprocessed meats and processed meats were similar, but only processed meats were linked to higher risk.”
That’s a really telling conclusion. Personally I think it’s a load of old nonsense that eating red meat is linked to health issues, the reason being, several studies I’ve seen lump processed meats with red meats, when assessing risk factors. It’s very refreshing to see this study do the exact opposite and conclude that red meat does not increase the risk of heart disease!
The world’s dietary advice can be changed, one study at a time.
