Red Meat Increases Diabetes Risk

Posted: Tuesday, September 21, 2004

and Women's Hospital in Boston, and colleagues examined the association between red meat consumption and the risk of type 2 diabetes, the type that doesn't necessarily require insulin.

A total of 37,309 participants in the Women's Health Study were followed for an average of 8.8 years. The subjects were at least 45 years of age, and had never been diagnosed with heart disease, stroke, cancer, or diabetes when the study began. Food questionnaires were used to determine how much red meat the subjects ate.

During the study, 1558 women were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
