Watch out if your on a rich red meat diet! Studies show people on red meat rich diets have been linked to a heightened risk of a bowel inflammation called diverticulitis. Diverticulitis is a common condition in which small pockets lining the intestine become irritated. Diverticulitis causes 200,000 hospital admissions every year in the United States alone.
- Researchers have determined connections between the consumption of red meat and an intestinal illness called diverticulitis.
- Several behaviors, including low-fiber diets, smoking, obesity, and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, have also been linked to diverticulitis.
- Research found that even after controlling for other factors, diverticulitis increased among men in the study group who consumed more red meat.
