1. We Still Eat Too Much Red and Processed Meat
Eating too much red and processed meat is one of the most dangerous dietary choices one can make. And while globally, people have reduced their red meat intake during the past decade, the amount of processed meats remains unchanged. On average, Americans eat about 1 ounce (28 g) of processed meat on a daily basis, and the statistics are similar in many other countries.
This is twice the daily allowance of this type of product, which has been officially named a carcinogen in many countries. In fact, the overall daily limit of all meats (with preference given to low-fat meats), eggs, dry beans, and nuts should not exceed 2 servings and a total of 6 ounces (170 g). High red meat and processed meat intake lay the greatest burden on stomach and colorectal cancer risk.
