Red and processed meat are OK to eat, controversial new guidelines claim. Don’t believe it, resulting experts say

( CNN) Leading nutritional experts in the United Nation and the UK are fired up about new dietary recommendations claiming there’s no need to reduce your red and processed meat intake for good health.

The new guidelines and five coinciding studies are part of a systematic analysis of existing research done by NutriRECS,a recently formed international group of nutritionists and health researchers. NutriRECS says its mission is to “produce trustworthy nutritional guideline recommendations based on the values, attitudes and preferences of patients and community members.”

Bradley Johnston, the result author of the guidelines and co-founder of NutriRECS, said the analysis failed to find “any certainty that eating red meat or processed meat causes cancer, diabetes or heart disease.”
