Is red meat unhealthy for you as it is high in fat?

Red meat is a source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and zinc, making it a nutritious food. Nowadays, the fat and saturated fat content of some lean cuts of red meat is lower than we may think. UK composition data shows that the average fat content of lean lamb is 8%, while lean beef is 5% and lean pork can be less than 3%. Try to select leaner cuts, reduced fat mince when shopping and remove visible fat when cooking.
