For nutrition in 2011, the Harvard School of Public Health launched the ‘Healthy Eating Plate' in part because of the perceived inadequacies of the USDA's recommendations, that launched ‘MyPlate', which didn't distinguish kinds of meat, but did recommend eating at least 8 oz or 227 grams of fish each week. Consumers are encouraged by the ‘Healthy Eating Plate' to avoid processed meat and limit red meat consumption to twice a week because of links to colon cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. It recommends consuming poultry, fish, nuts or beans as replacement.
Medical literature published in 2012, noted that cheese consumption is the leading contributor of saturated fat in the U.S. diet, and therefore would be predicted to increase LDL cholesterol and consequently increase the risk of cardiovascular disease., The Telegraph, reflects on the eating of red meat and cheese by a recent international study:
“The study of 220,000 adults found that eating three portions of dairy and one and half portions of meat a day could cut the risk of early death by one quarter.
Scientists said the findings “challenge conventional wisdom” after decades of advice to cut down on full-fat dairy and red meat.

Current NHS guidance says dairy should make up just eight per cent of a person’s daily recommended calorie intake – allowing just one yoghurt or two small slices of cheese.
And red meat consumption should be limited to 70 grams (2.5 oz) a day, it says.
The new global study by McMaster University, in Canada found that far higher levels of intake were linked to a far lower risk of early death.
Those having three portions of dairy – which could mean two slices of cheese, a full-fat yoghurt and half a pint of whole milk – and one and half portions of red meat daily fared best. This equates to around 20-25 per cent of calories coming from dairy.
Their rates of early death were 25 per cent lower than those of people consuming less, with 22 per cent fewer heart attacks.
The amount of meat being consumed amounted to around 4.5 oz daily – the equivalent of a small steak.
