Study: Red Meat Intake May Increase Risk of Early Death

Sometimes, nothing is more satisfying than just chomping down on a good old fashioned hamburger.

But, doing so in moderation may be more important than you may have realized.

New research has found that your red meat eating habits can be tied to your risk of early death.

The study monitored the eating habits and mortality risk of more than 50,000 women and nearly 28,000 men in the U.S. From 1986 to 2010.

Researchers found that within eight years, an increase of at least half a serving a day of processed red meat was associated with a 13% higher risk of early death and nine percent for unprocessed red meat.

Doctors suggest that eating less red meat and replacing it with other protein sources may help your heart and help you live longer.
