adding an extra portion of unprocessed red meat to someone's daily diet would increase the risk of death by 13%, of fatal cardiovascular disease by 18% and of cancer mortality by 10%.Bacon, I thought you were my friend
The figures for processed meat were higher, 20% for overall mortality, 21% for death from heart problems and 16% for cancer mortality
Will this change your eating habits?
It's suggested that the risk comes from saturated fat, and the reason processed meat (i.e. bacon, ham, sausages, burgers) is worse is the additional salt and preservatives. So I'm guessing lean steak is ok.
Playing all the right notes— but not necessarily in the right order.
