What are the health benefits to adding red meat back into my diet?

What are the benefits (if any) of adding red meat? I haven't had it in several years, but I'm adding it back in, mainly for variety, but I'd like to know of any added health benefits. We eat quite a bit of chicken and turkey and have fish once or sometimes twice a week. Not really much variety there. If I were able to add more seafood, would my diet be varied enough to not warrant adding red meat? thanks

Plus the liver of lamb of cow is super nutritious...

FYI, pork is considered a red meat by the USDA.

I just lump them together because I gave them both up several years ago.

FYI, you tagged this with "pork", and pork is definitely not a red meat. Just like the famous ad campaign says "Pork: the other white meat."

I personally don't discriminate against one particular animal. So I do try to mix it up just to be fair on each species.

Jokes aside, I do think a fillet mignon beats a chicken breast hands down on the taste factor.

Some pluses of red meats: higher amounts of nutrients like iron, zinc, iron, thiamine and riboflavin (in addition to vitamins B12 and B6)

the omega 3 to omega 6 is much better in grass fed red meat as it is in poultry.
