Men often self-indulgent pork or beef, 1.4 times the risk of developing diabetes. These are the findings of Japanese researchers, who published their information on the official website of the National Center for Cancer Research.
Watching over five years for 64 thousand people age 45 and older, the researchers concluded that men who daily consume about 108 grams of meat products, the likelihood of developing diabetes by 1.36 times, compared with those who did not eat daily more than 23 grams of meat. Experts were also found that fans of pork and beef, the risk of diabetes increased 1.42 times.
"In all probability, this can be explained by the fact that the consumption of meat, particularly red, causes a dramatic increase in the level of iron in the blood, which inhibits the production of insulin, reducing sugar content. Meanwhile, in the present study, increased risk of diabetes in women, depending on the amount of meat consumed was not marked "- explained in his report to the scientists.
