Are there health benefits to incorporating lean unprocessed red meat into a healthy diet plan?
There is building evidence that consuming red meat, particularly in lean unprocessed form and in a healthy eating pattern, does not hinder cardiovascular health. However, there is a need for a more comprehensive assessment of the effects of consuming beef in a plant-based diet on cardiometabolic health.
The primary purpose of this study is to assess the effect of a diet with unprocessed red meat (beef) versus a meat-free lacto-ovo vegetarian diet on gut health in healthy adults. This study seeks men and women 30-69 who are interested in participating in a nutrition study.
