When we are trying to get protein, is red meat bad for us like the doctors say?
Fatty meats or red meats are typically higher in fat and the fat is generally a higher saturated fat than say, poultry (white meat). It would be the saturated fat in the meat that is the culprit and the doctors are warning against. To say that red meat in general and altogether is bad for you would be taking the statement too far.
“How could this increase your risk?”
In recent studies conducted by “The U.S. National Cancer Institute” Dr. Amanda Cross reports that there is a large increase with people who eat red meat and processed meat in Lung cancer and colorectal cancer.
