Animal Protein May Lead to Diabetes

April 17, 2014

People who eat the most animal protein are more likely to develop diabetes, according to a new study published by the American Diabetes Association.

Researchers looked at participants who were part of the EPIC study and found that  those who consumed the most animal protein were 22 percent more likely to develop diabetes, compared with those who ate the least. For every additional 10 grams of protein people ate, the risk for developing diabetes went up by 6 percent.

Other studies have also found risks associated with animal protein; read more here.
