Red Meat Increases Diabetes Risk
People who increase their red meat intake gain weight and increase their risk for diabetes, according to a new study published by the American Medical Association. Researchers analyzed the data of 149,143 participants from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, the Nurses’ Health Study, and the Nurses’ Health Study II and found that an increase of more than half of a serving of red meat per day increased the risk for type 2 diabetes by 48 percent. Decreasing red meat intake resulted in weight loss and a decreased risk for diabetes.
