Scientists at the University of Oxford say governments should consider imposing price hikes on red meat - such as beef, lamb and pork - to reduce consumption.  

They say it would save lives and more than £700m in UK healthcare costs, according to new research. 

Various research has linked eating red meat to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
