How much meat can you eat without harm to health?
Excessive meat consumption is worse than a meat deficit, nutritionists say. Even chicken nutrition experts advise eating no more than four times a week. And for older people – half as much.
The fact is that meat is poorly digested, and with age, the acidity of the stomach may decrease and the functioning of the pancreas may deteriorate. In this case, toxic metabolites are released, which increase the risk of developing intestinal cancer.
Safe meat volume per day: for a woman – from 130 to 150 g, for a man – from 150 to 180 g, for a child – from 50 to 80-100 g, for older people – from 50 to 100 g of meat per day.
