Beef, pork, lamb and goat are red meats, which are pink or red when raw and darker when cooked.
Red meat is rich in essential nutrients such as protein, iron and vitamin B12, and it is also very tasty. But have you ever wondered what happens to your body if you eat red meat every day?
You get the benefits of proteins
Meats like beef contain plenty of protein. For example, 120 grams of ground beef provides the body with 23 grams of protein, which is a significant amount, “Newsbeast” reports.
There is a risk of a cholesterol spike
Both good and bad cholesterol are important indicators of cardiovascular health. As this waxy substance builds up in the blood vessels, it can narrow the space through which oxygen-rich blood can travel, but also create blockages that cause heart attacks or strokes. Unfortunately, if you eat a hamburger or a steak every day, you’re not doing yourself a favor when it comes to cholesterol.
Red meat is especially apostrophized as the culprit for increasing bad cholesterol. Research from the University of Oxford has shown that people’s risk of coronary heart disease increases by 18 percent for every 50 grams of additional processed red meat they eat per day and by nine percent for every 50 grams of unprocessed meat.
You could feel more energetic
Protein isn’t the only nutritional superstar in red meat. It also contains vitamin B12 and iron, which play an important role in our health. Both vitamin B12 and iron are very important for maintaining energy. Lack of one and/or the other can lead to fatigue and weakness. In short, daily consumption of red meat could ward off feelings of sluggishness.
You can increase your risk of colon cancer
Another disadvantage of the habit of daily consumption of red meat is the increased risk of colon cancer. Numerous studies indicate a connection between higher consumption of meat such as beef, pork and lamb and a higher probability of this disease.
However, it should be noted that not all red meat has the same effects on human health. Red meat appears to increase the risk of the disease, but processed red meat has an even greater impact on the development of colon cancer.
According to the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, red meat is classified as a group 2A carcinogen, which means it is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Processed red meat, on the other hand, is classified as a group 1 carcinogen – a substance known to cause cancer.
You will be full
Proteins are very filling. By including red meat in your daily diet, you can feel fuller for longer, which can lead to a stable weight. Combining red meat with complex carbohydrates like quinoa and healthy fats like olive oil can further help you keep your weight off.
