The most unhealthy meat to eat is bacon and also hamburger.

Other meats which are red meats such as beef, pork and lamb are also considered unhealthy especially if the meats are processed meats.

Processed meats are unhealthy because of the addition of added salt and preservatives which also change the taste of the meats.

Meat is healthiest when it's fresh and not processed.

In general, red meats (beef, pork and lamb) have more saturated (bad) fat than chicken, fish and vegetable proteins such as beans.

Saturated and trans fats can raise your blood cholesterol and make heart disease worse.

The unsaturated fats in fish, such as salmon, actually have health benefits.

Finally, health experts say to stay away from processed meats, which are generally considered to be unhealthy.

These include any meat that has been smoked, salted, cured, dried, or canned.

Compared to fresh meat, processed meats are high in sodium and can have double the amount of nitrates.
