Low intake of red meat cuts diabetes, heart disease risk
Reducing consumption of red meat can cut chronic disease risk and result in a decline of carbon footprint by 28 million tonnes a year in the UK alone, a new study has claimed. Research published in the journal BMJ Open have found that by halving red and processed meat consumption would not only prompt a fall in chronic disease incidence of between 3 and 12 per cent in the UK, but its carbon footprint would also shrink by 28 million tonnes a year.
