Allison Van Dusen of Forbes says reducing your saturated fat intake, animal products, can significantly improve your health. “Would we all be better off if we dramatically reduced meat to the point of one meal a week? I would say yes,” says Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But the reality is that, from a public health perspective, if we just get some modest reductions in our intake of saturated fats, it’ll have a big impact.” So if you are not ready to become a vegetarian or vegan, try really hard to reduce your animal protein intake by eating much less meat, eggs, milk, cheese and butter. Your health is your choice! Choose wisely.
