A new study published by the National Cancer Institute concludes eating too much red meat and processed meat can shorten your life.
More than a half-million people, ages 50 to 71, reported what they were eating for a decade to researchers at the Institute. During the project more than 71,000 people died.
Women and men eating the highest amount of red meat were found to have a 36 percent and 31 percent higher risk, respectively, of dying from any cause than those eating the least amount. Causes of death varied from diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, ulcers, liver disease and more.
Men and women eating the most processed meat also were more likely to die early than those eating the least amount of this type of meat. Men had a 16 percent increase and women a 25 percent increase.
Among those eating the most red meat, men had a 22 percent higher risk of death from cancer and women a 20 percent higher risk.
The risk of dying from cardiovascular disease was especially high in both men and women, 27 percent for men and 50 percent for women who ate the highest amount of red meat.
The researchers noted people who ate the most white meat showed a lower risk of dying, but they still had a 24 percent higher risk of dying from heart problems for men and 20 percent higher risk for women.
According to the study, reducing meat consumption to the amount eaten by the people in the lower 20 percent of the study would save 11 percent of men’s lives and 16 percent of women’s.
