Another article today on CBC Canada's news website and it is so good to see these articles being published on a regular basis.

Some of the highlights of the article:

'Is red meat good or bad?' Researchers say that's the wrong question

In assessing heart health from diets without red meat, pay attention to what's substituted in its place

"We find that when red meat was substituted by high-quality plant protein sources including legumes, soy or nuts, that led to more favourable changes in blood lipids and lipoproteins compared to red meat," Guasch-Ferré said in an interview.
Legumes include beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas.
"Asking 'Is red meat good or bad?' is useless," Meir Stampfer, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition and senior author of the study, said in a release from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. "It has to be 'compared to what?' If you replace burgers with cookies or fries, you don't get healthier. But if you replace red meat with healthy plant protein sources, like nuts and beans, you get a health benefit."
"The impact of the diet change can vary a lot depending on what is being replaced by what is taken away," said Rosella, an expert in population health research. "This is an important message for consumers, because often results from studies like this can be interpreted too simplistically to — 'don't eat this' or 'eat that' — when in fact consumers should be thinking about their overall diet and how to make that as healthy as possible across the board, including what they drink."
