Sometimes people can find it challenging to eliminate red meats from their diet altogether. It would be unfair to lecture everybody and say that red meat is the devil. Ultimately, we make our own decisions, and often those decisions are based on our knowledge. This article looks to broaden that knowledge by helping you be more aware of how you can mitigate the level of risk done to your body through excessive meat consumption. The article will offer four fundamental tips;

  • Cut down portion sizes or vary your proteins
  • Exercise
  • Get a friend to help you
  • Choose leaner cuts of meat and avoid processed meats

However, before we jump into these tips, it is essential to know why exactly we may want to cut our red meat intake down a little!

In late 2015, the World Health Organisation released a statement suggesting that red meat was now classed as a carcinogen. They would then go even further and state that eating processed red meat “probably causes cancer”. This announcement was concerning for many people, and I think it answers the central question of this article.

However, I want to help you understand why exactly red meat increases your chances of getting cancer and examine their cause-and-effect relationship. Furthermore, I will provide a few alternatives to red meat to decrease your risk of developing cancer!
