Today, a new study by nutritionists from the University of California at San Francisco found that eating white meat is not an automatic panacea for getting rid of high cholesterol – red meat was previously considered to be more dangerous in this regard. However, now American nutritionists have been able to visually prove with the example of several hundred participants in the experiment that even white meat somehow raises the level of cholesterol – and the results were surprising in comparison with the group that consumed only proteins of plant origin.
It is worth noting the fact that many previous studies of the dietary type suggested that red meat is the most dangerous in terms of increasing cholesterol and blood pressure – which can cause the emergence and development of the widest range of diseases. However, a new study from San Francisco found that white meat is no safer, because it carries out exactly the same fermentation processes.
And when scientists looked at the difference in metabolism and the state of the cardiovascular system – as well as the cholesterol level – of several hundred participants in the experiment, they did not notice any difference between red and white meat in the long run. What can not be said about those people who consumed only proteins of plant origin – they have cholesterol level and the number of harmful cells in the body was noticeably less, which indicates the unconditional victory of plant families of protein.
Thus, the new study in one way or another concerns the proper selection of certain products for the diet of any modern person who wants to stay healthy and active as long as possible – and again white meat has become questionable about its own safety. However, experts also want to conduct some additional tests and tests related to this topic.
