A prospective study of red meat consumption and type 2 diabetes in middle-aged and elderly women: the women's health study.

Type 2 diabetes is more likely to affect middle-aged and elderly women who habitually consumed generous amounts of red and processed meats.

​This study assessed how high dietary ingestion of red meat influences the risk of developing type 2 diabetes among middle-aged and elderly women. Researchers studied the dietary habits of 37,305 women aged 45 years and above and with no previous history of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes for 8.8 years. During the course of the study, 1,558 women were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

Researchers found out the more the amount of red and processed meats consumed, the higher a woman's chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The results of this study show that a high-meat diet may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes in middle-aged and elderly women.
