Red meat is an Australia diet staple, but there is increased chatter about meat being bad for your health. Harvard researchers after tracking 121,000 adults for up to 28 years, found that people who ate three ounces of red meat every day were about 13 percent more likely to die—often from heart disease or cancer—before the study ended than people who didn’t eat meat. And daily servings of processed meat such as bacon raised the risk of early death by 20 percent. Saturated fat and cholesterol are only the start of meat’s diet dangers. Overloads of iron can threaten the hearts of meat eaters; sodium and nitrates make processed meat even worse. It’s no wonder that many experts recommend reducing or eliminating red meat from your diet.

You can still fit a daily serving of red meat into a healthy diet. Choose lean cuts of meat and avoid processed meats (bacon, sausage, bologna—anything preserved with salt, curing, or chemicals).
