FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

A study published in the June 14, 2005 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute reports that consuming significant amounts of red and processed meat are associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. High levels of fish consumption are associated with a decreased risk.

It is still a good idea to consume fish twice a week as advocated by the American Heart Association. Practice portion control with red meat and try to focus on the suggestions from MyPlate for the Protein group:

1) Keep protein choices lean

2) Get a greater variety of plant protein items like nuts, seeds and beans/legumes.Don’t just eat chicken and beef all the time.

3) Eat fish a few times per week.

4) Prepare protein items with as little fat as possible.
