Increased dietary intake of meat, especially processed meats, can lead to a spike in the risk of type 2 diabetes.

This study seeks to clarify the association between the eating a meaty diet and the possibility of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D). A total of 18,527 individuals who were surveyed about their diets and health participated in this study. 

Researchers discovered that the odds of acquiring type 2 diabetes were tilted against ardent consumers of meat, particularly processed meats. This study demonstrates that a high meaty diet might be a potential risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
