Red Meat Increases Diabetes Risk Part 2

Posted Jun 18 2013 3:00am
Just shy of 2 years ago, I pointed out an observational study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in which red meat was linked to diabetes.  Since then, I've also found studies in which red meat consumption was linked to death , stroke & even more death , as well as prostate & colon cancers .

Well, in a series of prospective cohort studies published online earlier this week in JAMA Internal Medicine (aka Archives of Internal Medicine) in which the authors concluded that red meat consumption was associated w/increase risk of diabetes.  The authors arrived at their conclusion by studying the 26,357 men in the Professionals Follow-Up Study, 48,709 women in the Nurses' Health Study, and 74, 077 women in the Nurses' Health Study II and following for an average of 4-8yrs each.

So I find myself asking if a prime Wagyu A5 rib eye is really worth the risk.
