IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN RED MEAT AND HEART DISEASE

IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN RED MEAT AND HEART DISEASE

Red meat, while part of most people’s diets, is recommended not eat too much of because of its link with colorectal cancer and heart disease.

Recent research has raised the ante when it comes to the risk of heart disease. And it is to do with a chemical called trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) made in the gut by bacteria.

When on the red meat diet, blood levels of TMAO were three-times higher compared to diets high in white meat or non-meat protein sources.

The positive news from the study was that TMAO levels rapidly declined when people switched off the high red meat diet.
