Red Meat Hikes Diabetes Risk

Individuals who added more than half a serving a day of red meat to their diet saw a 48% increase in their risk of type 2 diabetes onset over the next 4 years compared with those who stayed at that level, An Pan, PhD, of the Harvard School of Public Health and National University of Singapore, and colleagues found.


Cutting intake by the same amount during the first 4 years of follow-up lowered that risk by 14% during the following 12 to 16 years, the researchers reported online in JAMA Internal Medicine.
