Switching away from red meat may lessen heart disease

Long-term studies in thousands of nurses in the journal Circulation show that:

age, smoking, and other risk factors, higher intakes of red meat, red meat excluding processed meat, and high-fat dairy were significantly associated with elevated risk of CHD (coronary heart disease, such as heart attacks and angina)

Higher intakes of poultry, fish, and nuts were significantly associated with lower risk.

I eat canned wild salmon and/or sardines most days.
