Eating Red and Processed Meat Raises Risk of Heart Disease

A new large study from Northwestern University, US, suggests that red and processed meat connected to a higher risk of heart disease and all causes death.

The study finds that people who eat two servings of red meat, processed meat or poultry per week are at higher 3–7% risk of developing cardiovascular disease, and eating two servings of red meat or processed meat per week was associated with a 3% higher risk of death from all causes.

The senior study author Norrina Allen, associate professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, comments: “It's a small difference, but it's worth trying to reduce red meat and processed meat like pepperoni, bologna and deli meats. Red meat consumption also is consistently linked to other health problems like cancer.”
