Conversely, replacing the daily consumption of red meat with a healthy source of protein is associated with lower mortality risk, which is 19 percent lower when the meat is replaced with beans, 14 percent for poultry or cereal, 10 percent for beans or low-fat dairy products, and 7 percent for fish.
