Is white meat really more healthful than red meat?

 2 months ago       63 Views

A new study breaks some bad news for meat eaters, as researchers find that white meat is just as harmful to cholesterol levels as red meat.

The paper counters the widespread belief that white meat is more healthful than red. This belief relies on a variety of observational studies that have found a link between red meat intake and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

However, the authors of the new research argue that the connection between white meat and cholesterol has not received enough attention in specialized literature.

So, a team of researchers — spearheaded by senior author Dr. Ronald Krauss, senior scientist and director of Atherosclerosis Research at the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute in California — set out to investigate this link in more detail.
