Quick Tip:

Don’t be fooled: The phrase “red meat” means beef, lamb … and pork. Despite industry claims that it’s “the other white meat,” pork is considered a red meat because it contains more of the red, iron-containing pigment called myoglobin than white meats like chicken or fish. AICR recommends limiting your combined consumption of beef, pork and lamb to less than 18 ounces per week.
