A new study of 84,000 women has proven the benefits of eating nuts, fish and poultry compared to processed red meat.

According to http://www.theheart.org, this new study out of Boston “shows that one serving per day of nuts was associated with a 30% lower risk of coronary disease than one serving per day of red meat. The same one-serving exchange comparison found a 13% lower risk with low-fat dairy, a 19% lower risk with poultry, and a 24% lower risk with fish.”  In addition, the study concluded that eating 50 g of processed meat per day was associated with a 42% higher risk of heart disease!

The bottom line is this: women should choose fish or chicken over processed red meat like deli roast beef, bacon or sausage.  Every day that a woman chooses a healthier alternative helps to reduce her chance of heart disease!
