For real. Looking at 20 years of data among 200,000 health professionals and nurse participants, Harvard researchers determined that a small serving of processed or red meat not only increases diabetes risk by up to 51%, but that substituting healthier protein sources–such as soy dogs, whole grains, nuts, beans, or lentils–actually decreases Diabetes risk by 20-25%. Read the abstract of the meta-analysis (a super study with statistically strong results) in this month’s American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Unless you don’t mind Diabetes, it’s time to consider some meatless main dishes, STAT!
