    Which is healthier?

    Which is healthier, red meat, chicken or pork?

    Lean red meat isn't as bad for you as fatty cuts of pork--and it certainly provides more iron than the either pork or chicken. But I'd have to say that chicken is the healthiest of the three. Of course, it ultimately depends on how you prepare any of the three. But as far as grilling or sauteeing, etc, chicken is the winner.

    I'd have to go with chicken. Of course, you want to stay away from all fried foods so in that case lean red meat would win. Pork however is the worst. But it is tasty!

    As a butcher, I have seen all kinds of unappetizing things going on in meat. I have seen cancers, infections and various other diseases, including tuberculosis. Pork by far is the worst of all, red meat is not so bad as long as it is lean and in moderation. As for myself, I eat a lot of ground turkey breast and skinless/boneless chicken, usually the breast portions. I stay away from farm raised fish and shrimp, more specifically the salmon and tilapia.

    The color enhancers in farm raised salmon cause you to retain fat and actually change the color of your own tissues as well, and has been shown to cause cancer (even though it is high in Omega 3's). Tilapia is high in Omega 6's and work against the benefits of the Omega 3's, also causing you to reatain more fat than if you ate a glazed doughnut of the same portion size (according to Dr. Oz).

    I have a hub called "The Other White Meat May Kill You". Check it out.

    I would have said chicken too. But ocean caught fish would have to be the best.

    Before a hard Running session i usually take some red meat from Bio certified sources ( cows that are breed outdoors on a vegetables diet). On my rest days my body needshigh protein sources therefore I eat a lot of white meat ( chicken breast, turquey ) and fish to replenish muscle .
    like Badegg said I believe white meat is generally wealthier

    Which ever cut had the least amount of fat! So probably chicken
