EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Here's some food for thought. In East Texas, we love our red meat but too much can be deadly.
A new and large study based on half a million adults shows a huge risk of dying from heart disease and cancer, just from eating a third of a pound of red meat every day.
On the other hand, eating white meats like fish and chicken show a decrease in those diseases.
A dietician we interviewed at U.T. Health Center says it's all in how you prepare the meats. For instance, eating a lot of fried chicken can be just as unhealthy. For healthier options, try baking and broiling meat.
