Red meat: Avoid the processed stuff
Eating red meat regularly may not be as bad for us as was once believed, but frequent consumption of processed meats like hot dogs, cold cuts, and bacon is still unhealthy. This doesn't mean you should indulge your carnivorous appetite. The best sources of protein are still fish, beans, nuts, and poultry. But the findings do suggest that eating red meat a few times a week can be part of a healthful diet.
