Is Red Meat Bad for Health? [Myths Busted]

#4 Myth about Red Meat: Red meat is the only source of saturated fats.

Fact: If you have been avoiding red meat only due to its saturated fats, then you’re walking down the wrong path. Red meat has saturated fats, but if you love a dollop of butter on your naan or a tub of ice cream after a meal, then you are piling on unwanted fat - most of it is saturated, even without any red meat involvement. These are fats that will clog up your arteries, causing problems of the heart and the waist.

Bottom-line: If you are eliminating only red meat from your diet you will lose out on the vitamins, hence avoid other foods that are rich in bad saturated fats.
