I am aware that in general, poultry is preferable to red meat for a healthy diet. What I am not clear about is whether the reason for this is because red meat is much fattier and caloric than poultry or if there are additional reasons.

To make this question concrete, let's suppose I want to eat a burger every day for lunch. Would it be healthier for me to choose 85% lean ground turkey over 85% lean ground beef, or are those options identical on health grounds due to their identical fat content?
