We eat red meat when we eat pork, beef, camel meat and lamb but a recent study involving a large sample now discourages the eating of red meat.
Red meat contains haem which gives it its colour and is said to cause erosion of the lining of the bowel, besides processing of red meat can result in production of carcinogens (cancer forming substances.
Red meat is incriminated in bowel cancer and heart disease.
The above observation had been given years earlier by the World Cancer Research Fund which advised limitation of red meat consumption to 500g (0.5kg) ((cooked) and 700g (uncooked)  per week.
