Eating more fish, poultry, nuts, and lowfat dairy products instead of red meat may lower your risk for heart disease. Researchers who followed over 84,000 women aged 30 to 55 in the Nurses’ Health Study showed that women who swapped 1 serving of red meat for 1 serving of nuts reduced their heart disease risk by 30%.

Swapping a serving of fish for a serving of red meat reduced risk by 24%; 19% for poultry; and 13% for lowfat dairy foods.
