Study: Red Meat Leads To Higher Diabetes Risk

ATLANTA (WAOK) – A new study by researchers at the National University of Singapore indicates people who eat more red meat are at more risk of getting Type 2 diabetes than those who eat less. The report, using data from three Harvard University studies, indicates that people who eat more than five servings of red meat per day have a 48-percent greater chance of developing Type 2 diabetes. Those who eat less than five servings have a 14-percent lower risk of diabetes. The study is reported in “JAMA Internal Medicine.”
