Eating red meat linked to diabetes
NBC NEWS — Eating processed and red meat increases the risk for Type-2 Diabetes according to a new study by Harvard researchers.
The study looked at medical records from more than 200,000 men and women who were followed for at least ten years.
They found eating a two ounce serving of processed meat every day increased the risk for diabetes 50%. A four ounce serving of red meat, also raised the risk.
Researchers say the high sodium and nitrate content in meat might be behind the increased risk.
