Big Mac a safe option under gov guidelines

Under new government guidelines consumers will be urged to avoid a lean steak but are welcome to tuck into a Big Mac, according to BBC reports.

The BBC assessed what was acceptable and not acceptable in an article on its website. It stated out of six common options, which included a cooked breakfast, spaghetti bolognese and roast dinner, the only option which fitted with the new government guidelines when it comes to amounts of red meat to eat was the Big Mac.

In a report published today the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) recommended that the average person eat no more than 70 grams of cooked red meat per day.
