White meat, red meat have similar impact on cholesterol levels, research suggests

White meat, red meat have similar impact on cholesterol levels, research suggests

CNN (6/4, Scutti) reports research indicates “eating white meat, such as poultry, will have an identical effect on your cholesterol level as eating red beef.” The findings were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

NBC News (6/4, Edwards, Charles) reports on its website that the “study found that consuming high levels of red meat or white poultry resulted in higher blood cholesterol levels than consuming an equal amount of plant protein.” NBC News adds that “the findings held even when diets contained high levels of saturated fat, which increased blood cholesterol to the same extent as all three protein sources.”
