Red meat may hurt your overall health


(NBC) -- Eating too much red meat might hurt your overall health.

Researchers at the National Cancer Institute surveyed over 500 hundred thousand adults, then followed them for ten years.

They found those who ate the most red and processed meat had a significantly increased risk for death from heart disease and cancer than those who ate the least amount.

Adults who ate mostly white meat had a slightly reduced risk for death.
