Red meat, eggs in excess may prove fatal
People who tend to rely on tasty non vegetarian diet tend to end their lives early; after all, tasty is seldom healthy. 
 
 
A research shows that high intake of proteins from animal sources, especially red meat and eggs leads to increase mortality rates if they live unhealthy lives or are obese or underweight. 
 
 
The study that published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine focused on 170,000 participants since the 1980s. 
 
 
During this period, more than 36000 people died out of which, almost 9,000 from cardiovascular disease, around 13,000 from cancer and about 14,000 from other causes.
 
 
The study showed that the participants tend to use more meat, eggs or dairy products. 
 
 
Interestingly, high intake of proteins from animal products did not make any did not make any difference to the people who used to live healthy lives. 
 
 
Also, the people who took breads, cereals, pasta, beans, nuts and legumes etc, there were less mortality rates.
 
 
The mortality rates were also higher in people who consumed heavy alcohol along with smoking history.
