Chemicals in red meat linked to heart disease

If you love a good steak -- you may want to read to this.

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

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

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