According to a study featured on Medical News Today, consuming above average servings of red meat on a daily basis may increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Researchers from the National University of Singapore conducted a follow-up on three previous studies that worked with 149,143 American participants who were given food frequency surveys.

They found that those who increased their intake of red meat to more than 0.50 servings a day had a 48 percent higher risk of having type 2 diabetes as compared with those who remained consistent in their diet. On the other hand, those who lessened their consumption of red meat by 0.50 servings a day had 14 percent lower risk of developing the condition.

Although there are many other things that can cause type 2 diabetes, this is a good reminder for those who consume too much of a good thing. The key, as always, is having a balanced diet.
