Your diabetes risk may double if you eat this food twice a week, say Harvard researchers

Just two servings of red meat per week can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a new study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed. 

Swapping the red meat for plant-based proteins, by comparison, was linked to reduced diabetes risk, the study found.

Researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health analyzed more than 30 years of health data and dietary choices for 216,695 participants.
