Are Asian Meat Eaters Healthier?

According to a new analysis of eight prospective studies, Asians eating more red meat are less likely to get cancer and heart disease.

From The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition:
Conclusions: Ecological data indicate an increase in meat intake in Asian countries; however, our pooled analysis did not provide evidence of a higher risk of mortality for total meat intake and provided evidence of an inverse association with red meat, poultry, and fish/seafood. Red meat intake was inversely associated with CVD mortality in men and with cancer mortality in women in Asian countries.
