Eating Red Meat Increases Risk of Premature Death

RSS

A new study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health found that any red meat that you eat increases your chance of dying at an earlier age. Try picturing a piece of steak the size of a deck of cards and adding it to your daily diet- that piece of steak can be linked to a 13% greater chance of dying. This percentage came from the long study of 110,000 adults for more than 20 years. The researchers analyzed their eating habits and health and found any meat no matter if it was processed or not contributed to their early death.

The researchers are not entirely sure what causes the increase of mortality rate but recommends reducing the consumption of red meat to 2-3 servings a week. However, other researchers cautioned that this study could have a lot of errors due to the way the information was recorded. The researchers asked the participants through questionnaires about their food frequency, sometimes grueling details of past meals.
