Methods

"The aim of the present study was to investigate the association of different meat intake and substitution of them with risk of incident chronic kidney disease (CKD)."

Key Findings

"Higher consumption of total red meat and processed meat was associated with increased risk of incident CKD. Furthermore, substitution of total red and processed meat in the diet with other sources of dietary protein was associated with lower CKD risk." "In the substitution analyses, replacing 1 serving of total red meat and processed meat with 1 serving of low-fat dairy, nuts, whole grains, and legumes was associated with a lower risk of incident CKD."
