Eating Animal Protein Increases Type 2 Diabetes Risk

A 10-year European study of over 38,000 participants found that the risk of developing type 2 diabetes is increased by eating animal protein. Investigators discovered that meat, milk and cheese, and all sources of animal protein increased risk, but no risk was associated with vegetable protein from various sources. A plant-based diet has been shown to decrease the risk of disease and improve longevity.

PositiveTip: Try transitioning to a plant-based diet by gradually increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
