Men With Diet Rich In Animal Protein And Meat At Greater Risk Of Death, New Study Reveals

Non vegetarian food is mostly rich in protein and we all love satiating our taste buds. However, a latest study reveals that men with a diet rich in animal protein and meat such as sausages and cold cuts could be at a greater risk of death.

The study found men who favoured animal protein over plant-based protein in their diet had a 23 per cent greater risk of death than men whose diet was more balanced in terms of their sources of protein.

In addition, a high overall intake of dietary protein was associated with a greater risk of death in men who had been diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease or cancer.

However, a similar association was not found in men without these diseases, said the study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
