By TANYA NACOLAN, Associated Press The health benefits of meat and poultry are “absolutely” important to pregnant women, but some moms may feel uncomfortable about the way the two foods are packaged, and the ingredients that go into them, according to new research published by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
The research, which looked at more than 1.2 million women from the U.S. and around the world, also found that many women may be unaware of the risks and the possible health benefits that come from eating meat and eggs.
The findings suggest that a little education about the risks of eating meat or eggs is always good, even if the food is not what one might expect.
A recent study in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology found that more than half of pregnant women surveyed said they were concerned about the health effects of eating beef, pork and lamb.
But the researchers also found a large number of women who didn’t know that they were eating meat, poultry or eggs believed they were healthier.
“If you are eating meat in any form, whether it’s whole or sliced or in cubes or slices, then it’s good to know about the possible adverse effects of consuming this type of food,” said Dr. David Estrada, a reproductive endocrinologist at the University of Arizona.
“I think there are people who may be more comfortable eating chicken and eggs because of the higher fat content, but I think they’re still a healthy food to consume.”
He said many people also might not realize that eating meat can affect their immune system.
“When we’re eating a meat-containing diet, we may be getting all sorts of inflammatory cytokines, such as T-cells, which are important to the immune system,” Estradas said.
In addition to its health benefits, the study found that some people may be confused by the label on meat or the ingredients in the food. “
That’s why people are getting so sick from this type, and it’s important to make sure they’re getting the appropriate treatment.”

While some may not realize the potential dangers of consuming meat, many also might think it’s an easy way to save money.
“You’re basically buying a small piece of meat, a little piece of skin, a small amount of meat,” said Kristin Tipton, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Rutgers University.
In the past, Tiptons research has focused on pregnant women who were overweight or obese and who consumed a lot more meat and egg products than their normal weight. “
It’s a very simple process of cooking a lot of things together.”

“In terms of what we’ve found in this study, a lot has changed,” she said.
It’s important that women learn more about the potential risks associated with eating meat before eating it, she said, adding that more information about the nutrition and health benefits should be shared with people in their 20s and 30s.
Tiptos research found that the average American woman eats about three ounces of meat a week.
The average American also eats about 1.8 pounds of chicken, eggs, fish, poultry, shrimp and other meats a week, according in the study.
“One of the things that we learned is that people who are eating more meat, chicken and/or eggs, are eating it more often and they are eating less whole grain, so they’re also eating less of a whole plant-based diet,” Tipt on meat and health.
“And this is a good thing.
That’s one of the reasons that we have this health and weight-loss epidemic.”
Estradias study found more than one-third of pregnant Americans who ate more than a quarter of their calories from meat and/ or eggs during their pregnancy or lactation years were unaware of their risk for complications related to the foods.
Terton said she was particularly concerned about pregnant women whose health was compromised by eating more than their fair share of meat.
“We do know that eating more of a meat or poultry diet can increase the risk of premature birth and low birth weight, but we don’t know whether this is related to meat consumption itself,” she added.
“Many women may feel comfortable eating meat because of its lower fat content.
But if you’re eating meat on a daily basis and there’s a lot that goes into it, then there are probably some additional risks that might come up.”
Tipt said she did not think the findings showed there was a problem with the meat and dairy products that go in to chicken or beef, or that it was the healthiest option for pregnant women.
“The most important thing to understand is that eating a lot meat or a lot eggs is not necessarily going to be healthy,” she told AP Health.
“But you can eat a lot chicken or a
