Studies have revealed that consuming red meat may increase the risk of cancer and heart disease. But is it really worth it to give up red meat?

The answer is no. Experts believed that the risks of getting a disease from eating red meat were uncertain. This is why it is unlikely for meat lovers to reduce red meat from their food habits. Researchers said that factors such as other food and lifestyle could also be the reason.

An author from McMaster University said that people who are aware of the scope of the risks in eating red meat would still say “Thanks very much, but I’m going to keep eating my meat”.

The experts worked to know the possible result of eating less meat in North America and Western Europe. They found out that eating less meat would result in seven fewer cancer deaths only per 1,000 people.
