Reduce red meat intake and cut diabetes risk, urge experts

New research warns that eating more red meat can significantly increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Experts have revealed that raising consumption by more than half a serving a day led to a staggering 48 per cent increase in risk over the following four years, while reducing consumption by the same amount resulted in a 14 per cent lower risk.

The link may be due to the fat contained in red meat (mostly saturated), say experts, who are urging people to choose leaner cuts. It’s also worth noting that type 2 diabetes is strongly linked to lifestyle factors, such as being obese or overweight, or as a result of having an unhealthy diet.

Scientists have analyzed data from three previous US studies which focuses on 150,000 men and women. In the study, diets were assessed using food questionnaires and researchers recorded more than 7,500 cases of the illness, according to a report in the medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine online.

Compared with a group with no change in red meat consumption, it’s been revealed that an increase of half a serving a day resulted in a 48 per cent rise in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes over four years.
