Study Debunks That Eating Chicken Is Better Than Beef for Controlling Cholesterol

Chicken and steak have similar affect on cholesterol: study
Switching from red meat to chicken to keep your cholesterol down may not be a great strategy, according to a new study this Tuesday. Prior to this study, it was commonly believed that the high levels of saturated fat found in red meat, as opposed to poultry products, raises low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or "bad" cholesterol, leading to build-up in human arteries that can cause heart disease. Volunteers were allocated to red meat, white meat or non-meat protein diets consumed for four weeks each in random order. "So the result can be viewed as indicating either a cholesterol raising effect of both meats, or a cholesterol lowering effect of plant foods, or both", lead author Ronald Krauss told Newsweek.
After tracking how red meat, white meat and plant protein all impacted cholesterol levels, Krauss and his team determined that both red and white meat prompted higher blood cholesterol levels than diets containing an equivalent amount of plant protein.
During the last few decades, red meat's association with increased heart disease made it an unpopular choice for many. Government dietary guidelines encouraged the consumption of poultry as a healthier alternative.
The researchers discovered that consuming large amounts of either red or white meat resulted in an effectively equal level of large cholesterol-enriched LDL particles.
The researchers say eating proteins from dairy, legumes and vegetables provide the best cholesterol benefit.

Trump says UK Labour's Corbyn is a "negative force"
Although Corbyn did not mention Trump by name, it was made clear by the organisers that the message was directed at him. Corbyn on Monday declined to attend a dinner hosted Monday night by the Queen in Trump's honour.
"Indeed, other effects of red meat consumption could contribute to heart disease", adds Krauss, "and these effects should be explored in more detail in an effort to improve health".
