Researchers find new link between red meat and heart disease

CLEVELAND - If you love a good steak, you may want to listen to this.

There is a new link between red meat and heart disease, according to a new study. 

Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic say a compound called carnitine makes it easier for cholesterol to clog arteries.

If you eat a lot of red meat and your body converts carnitine into another chemical, it could raise your risk for heart disease, heart attacks, and strike.

The study is published in the journal "Nature Medicine."
