Chicken may be as bad for your cholesterol as red meat

Red and white meat also increased amounts of large LDL in comparison to diets that exclude meat.

Non-meat proteins such as vegetables, dairy, and legumes, including beans, show the best cholesterol benefit, according to the new study published Tuesday in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. There is less pressure on consumers to do the same with its white counterpart.

- The belief that chicken is better for you compared to red meats may not mean much anymore after a recently published study found white meat can be just as bad for your cholesterol.

However, data supporting this view is "somewhat incomplete", Krauss continued.

A new study reveals that no matter what type of meat you're eating, red or white, if you're consuming a lot it will still give you higher blood cholesterol levels than eating similar amounts of plant protein.

Saturated fats found in foods including butter, cheese and cream, increased blood cholesterol to the same extent with all three protein sources. Still, it's good to remember that chicken and turkey tend to be leaner meats than beef.

Plant proteins had the healthiest impact on blood cholesterol, the study results showed.

"I was surprised that the effect of white meat on cholesterol levels was identical to the effects of red meat", said Dr Ronald Krauss, study author and director of atherosclerosis research at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute.

So, participants eating a diet high in saturated fats had higher total and LDL cholesterol levels than those assigned to a diet low in saturated fat - no matter their source of protein.

Each group went through three different diets: one focused on red meats, another on white meats and one on non-meat proteins.

It is well-known that saturated fats increase the concentration of LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, in your bloodstream and if this harmful waxy substance builds up in your arteries, the result could be a heart attack or stroke.

The researchers didn't include grass-fed beef or processed products including sausage or bacon. They split them into two broad groups, with one group getting a diet high in saturated fats, while the other had a diet low in them. There may be other effects from eating red meat that contribute to cardiovascular disease, said the University of California, San Francisco researchers.

In the investigation, called the APPROACH - Animal and Plant Protein and Cardiovascular Health - preliminary, scientists took a gander at 113 sound individuals, who were arbitrarily alloted to an eating routine that was either high or low in immersed fat.

The Department of Health advises that no more that 70g cooked weight of red and processed meat should be eaten per day.
