The risk of type 2 diabetes increases significantly in women over 45 who regularly consume meat such as beef, pork and lamb say researchers from Brigham Women's Hospital who studied over 32,000 women. Processed meats such as bacon and hot dogs increased the risk further. This effect was not due to the high fat content of the food. Consumption of red meat is also linked to increased risk of colon cancer and cardiovascular disease. The recommendation is two or less servings of meat per week.
