Red Meat vs. White Meat

  Whether it's beef or chicken you're in the mood for, it's okay, as long as they are both lean meat. The Chicago Center of Clinical Research examined the changes in blood cholesterol in nearly 200 men and women, a study funded by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, in the Archives of Internal Medicine. These men and women were to follow the federal governments' National Cholesterol Education Program heart-healthy diet for 36 weeks. During these nine months, the subjects were directed to consume either six ounces of beef, veal or pork, or six ounces of chicken or fish per day, for five to seven days a week.   The results showed that cholesterol levels had decreased by 1.0 percent in patients assigned to lean red meat and by 1.8 percent in those assigned to lean white meat. LDL or "bad" cholesterol reduced by 1.7 percent in patients eating primarily lean red meat and 2.9 percent in those eating primarily lean white meat. "Good" cholesterol, HDL-thought to help protect against heart disease-increased two percent in both groups.
