A new study has shown that unprocessed, red meat does not in fact increase the risk of heart disease.  Instead any processed meat significantly increased the risk of heart problems.  The processed meats were defined as “any meat preserved by smoking, curing, or salting, such as sausages, bacon, and salami.”  The theory which they feel explains this variation in risk is that processed meats contain much more sodium and preservatives than unprocessed red meat.  Essentially we are finding more evidence of how bad salt can be when used in excess!
