    Experts have warned eating red and processed meat increases the risk of an earlier death

    Experts have warned eating red and processed meat increases the risk of an earlier death


    The new study, published in the British Medical Journal, examined the dietary habits of more than 81,000 people in the US.

    The researchers found that people who cut their red and processed meat intake while swapping for healthier foods, such as eggs, chicken and fish, enjoyed a longer life.

    Previous studies have shown that red and processed meat is linked to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and bowel cancer.
