Red Meat Alert

Red Meat’s long and illustrious rap sheet just got a bit longer. In a study that included over 46,000 men followed for a 26-year period, those who consumed the most red meat were 58 percent more likely to develop diverticulitis vs. those consuming the lowest amounts. In fact, for each daily serving of red meat, the risk of diverticulitis increased by 18 percent. If you enjoy fish or poultry, there is good news. Substituting a single serving of red meat with either of these proteins reduced the risk by 20 percent.

Diverticulitis is considered a disease tied to modern living, and it has become increasingly more common, particularly in younger adults. Avoiding processed foods, eating an abundance of plant-based foods, controlling your weight, and being physically active are additional steps to reduce your risks of this painful GI condition.
