Study shows eating red and processed meat can be detrimental to health

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A new study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine found a 3 to 7 percent higher risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and premature death for people who ate two servings of red meat and processed meat each week.

The new findings arrive just months after a controversial meta-analysis claimed there’s no need to reduce your red and processed meat intake for good health.

Dr. Jyoti Mayadev, Chief, Gynecology Oncology Radiation Services, UC San Diego & Assoc. Professor, Radiation Oncology, UC San Diego, was in studio to give more information about the study.
