How Red Meat Affects Your Health: 6 Reasons To Avoid Beef
If you’re thinking of going vegetarian (or at least flexitarian, for those who want a side of meat with their plants), this list is all the motivation you’ll need. The health and environmental costs of our meat-based food system might be enough to make you want to swap that steak for a salad—for good.
Reason 1: Red Meat May Increase Alzheimer’s Disease Risk
Reason 2: Red Meat Can Cause Cardiovascular Disease
Reason 3: Your Risk of Colon Cancer Goes Up With Your Red Meat Consumption
Reason 4: Lots of Beef –> Type 2 Diabetes
Reason 5: Mad Cow Disease. Obviously.
Reason 6: Meat Just Ain’t What It Used To Be
The main disadvantages of eating meat — aside from ethical considerations — are related to the fat, cholesterol and sodium content. People need some dietary fat and cholesterol on a regular basis for energy and to make cellular membranes and certain hormones. However, meat is relatively high in saturated fat and cholesterol, which increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and atherosclerosis. Sodium is also a serious concern because too much leads to high blood pressure and increased risk of stroke and heart failure. On average, processed meat contains approximately 310 milligrams of sodium per ounce, whereas unprocessed meat has about 77 milligrams. Younger adults should aim for less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily, whereas elderly adults and those with risk factors for hypertension should consume less than 1,500 milligrams per day.
