Researchers reveal that meat protein increases the risk of heart disease as compared to proteins from nuts and seeds, according to a study conducted on April 3, 2018.

Researchers in California and France has conducted this research and found that consumption of meat protein increases risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), whereas protein from nuts and seeds is good for human heart. According to a study conducted by the researchers, it was found that there is 60 percent increased risk of cardiovascular disease on consumption of meat protein. 81,000 participants were included in the study and this is one of the few studies, which has included study of animal protein along with animal fat.

According to Gary Fraser, PhD, until now nutritionists only considered bad fats from meats and helpful fats from nuts and seeds, however, this study proves that there are biological effects of proteins present in these foods. Compared to earlier studies, this study is significant in another way as well. Researchers, in this study have studied about meat protein and protein from nuts and seeds, whereas earlier studies were focused only on examining differences between animal and plant proteins. Fraser said, “This research is suggesting there is more heterogeneity than just the binary categorization of plant protein or animal protein.”

This study provides scope for further investigation on issues such as contribution of specific amino acids in meat proteins to CVD. Increased risk of heart diseases will increase growth of cardiovascular drugs market, as elaborated in the cardiovascular drugs market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
