Analyzing nearly 30 years of data collected from 121,000 participants, the Harvard researchers found that people who eat red meat regularly are significantly more likely to die prematurely from various causes, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The saturated fat in beef, pork and lamb; the nitrites in processed meats; and the carcinogens that form when meat is cooked at high temperatures all make it a health hazard.
