Swapping out red meat for plant-based alternativ­es has been shown to reduce blood levels of trimethyla­mine N-oxide (TMAO) – a molecule strongly linked with cardiovasc­ular disease – in a new Stanford Medicine study. LDL cholestero­l (the ‘bad’ type) also dropped significan­tly when making the switch to plant-based alternativ­es. Although plant burgers made from whole foods such as beans and chopped mushrooms are a better substituti­on, it seems even the more processed meatless alternativ­es may provide some benefits.
