Study suggests red and white meats could be equally bad for cholesterol

Study suggests red and white meats could be equally bad for cholesterol”

It's more about how much saturated fat is in your food - whether white or red, meats high in saturated fat present the greatest danger to your cholesterol levels.

The Animal and Plant Protein and Cardiovascular Health trial showed eating a heavy diet of red meat or white meat led to higher blood cholesterol levels for the consumer than eating the same amount of plant proteins.

Contrary to popular belief, consuming red meat and white meat, such as poultry, has equally negative effects on blood cholesterol levels, according to a study published today in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study only looked at lean meats and did not include processed meats or fish.

Those anxious about their cholesterol who opt for chicken instead of beef may want to check out a new study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

But neither is as good as cutting out meat altogether and eating plant-based proteins instead, the study found.

The study also found that red and white meat, and diets high in saturated fat, increased amounts of large cholesterol-enriched low-density lipoprotein particles. LDL is often referred to as "bad" cholesterol because of its propensity to lead to buildup in the arteries.

The new findings contradict guidelines from health groups that eating poultry is better for heart health than red meat, suggesting there is less health difference between the two proteins than previously thought.

U.S. dietary guidelines now suggest adults on a standard 2,000-calorie-per-day diet limit their total consumption of meat, poultry and eggs to an average of 3.7 ounces daily.

While government dietary guidelines have recommended decreasing consumption of red meat and increasing consumption of poultry, the study's results suggest more research is needed and a change to guidelines may be necessary.
