Diabetes on a plate

Another large-scale study following over 340,000 people from eight European countries produced very interesting results. It showed that the more meat you eat the more you’re likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The study results also discovered that in men, this association exists not only for total meat intake but also for red and processed meat consumption. The results were the same for women but one more food group was showing the association – poultry.
