Health: Red meat lovers this piece of news may blow your mind. Red meat can kill you… everybody is aware about it? Sure but it turn out that meat can kill you faster than we thought. Red meat linked to the increased risk of cancer and heart diseases. It seems everything is against non-vegetarian.
Conducted by physicians from Mayo Clinic in Arizona, the review of large-scale studies involving more than 1.5 million people found all-cause mortality is higher for those who eat meat, particularly red or processed meat, on a daily basis.
According to the Mayo Research, gorging on processed red meat such as bacon, sausage, salami and unprocessed red meat, like beef, pork or lamb on a daily basis can decrease life of non-vegetarian.
The review showed the smallest increase in intake of meat, particularly red or processed meat led to steepest rise in mortality rate. Vegetarians, on the other hand, live longer life.
After analyzing six studies that evaluated the effects of meat and vegetarian diets on mortality, the authors recommended that the physicians should advise patients to limit animal products when possible and consume more plants than meat.
The reviewers also found a 3.6-year increase in life expectancy for those on a vegetarian diet for more than 17 years, as compared to short-term vegetarians.
