Red Meat Linked To Diabetes
This health tip may not be welcome news for many people. Eating processed or unprocessed red meat, daily, has been a part of the American diet for years.
New research suggests that the consumption of red meat over a four year period increases the risk of developing diabetes by 20 percent. The risk can be lowered if the consumption of meat is decreased over a period of four years or longer.
The take home point is having more meatless meals may be a good idea.
