Reduce Red Meat, Reduce Heart Disease
Rather than rely on medication or surgeries to correct our poor lifestyle choices, what if we just made better lifestyle choices? Research has found that when we reduce red meat we reduce heart disease… in just one month.
Bacon, burgers and steaks aren’t great for us – we know that.
But you can undo the damage eating them causes within just one month if you cut them out.
Scientists from the Cleveland Clinic Center for Microbiome and Human Health have found that regular consumption of red meat can raise your level of a heart disease-causing chemical by more than 10 times.
The organic compound is known as TMAO (trimethylamine N-oxide) and having high levels of it is associated with increasing the risk of stroke, heart attacks and premature death. The findings were published in European Heart Journal.The Cleveland study found that levels of this dangerous chemical rise threefold after just one month of eating red meat.
Compared to people who ate white meat or veggie meals, red meat eaters had a tenfold risk.
