The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, followed over 100,000 people for about 28 years and found that even eating small quantities of processed meats like salami, sausages and bacon increased the risk of death from cancer or heart disease by one-fifth, while steak increased the risk by 12 per cent.
According to researchers, cutting the amount of red meat consumed per day to 1.5 ounces or 42 grams a day (the current Department of Health recommendation is 2.5 ounces, or 72 grams, a day) could help prevent almost one in 10 premature deaths in men and one in 13 early deaths in women. 1.5 ounces is roughly equivalent to one large steak a week.
Researchers discovered that every three ounce serving of red meat per day was linked with an 18 per cent increased risk of dying from heart disease, and a 10 per cent increased risk of dying from cancer. Processed meat servings (two slices of bacon or one hot dog) saw those numbers increase to a 21 per cent risk of dying from heart disease and a 16 per cent risk of dying from cancer"
Чем дальше, тем сильнее убеждаюсь в правильности принятого решения сократить потребление мяса до максимального минимума.
