A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine warned that consuming red meat -- both processed and unprocessed -- increases your risk of premature death.
The study examined 121,000 men and women for an average of 24 years. Over the course of the study, 24,000 of the participants died. The death rates among those who ate the most red meat were higher than among those who ate the least.
Every extra daily serving of unprocessed red meat increased the risk of dying prematurely by 13 percent. The risk increased to 20 percent for those who consumed extra servings of processed red meat.
So, in light of this study, will you change your eating habits? Take our poll and let us know.
