The study followed people from 10 European countries for nearly 13 years on average.

Lifestyle factors

It showed people who ate a lot of processed meat were also more likely to smoke, be obese and have other behaviours known to damage health...

Baily Brindle's curator insight, April 10, 2013 10:14 PM

After reading this article, I do not know if I will look at a stake the same way again. Upon starting this venture I knew that it would be a good idea to avoid processed meat (we all know that a hotdog is noit a healthuy option), but red meat did not seem to come to mind. This information is very useful as I enjoy having a funcionting heart, but that ribeye does not aree to much with that notion.
