Nearly every non-vegetarian is obsessed with devouring juicy and flavorful meat during a meal. And, maybe they are not completely wrong. Studies show that if around 15% of calories in a diet don’t come from protein, you may start craving it. Unfortunately, many choose meat as the only protein source. People are often unaware of the plant sources of protein that are a healthier and tasty replacement.
According to a recent National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) data, almost 16.4% Indians consume mutton. But do they know that it can lead to type 2 diabetes?
A study by the American Diabetes Association says that people with a high intake of animal proteins are 22% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. For a long time, science has known that fat and protein can lead to type 2 diabetes. Also, researchers at Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore found that people with a higher consumption of red meat were 23% more likely to get diabetes because of the iron overload in the body that promotes insulin resistance and raises blood glucose levels.
It also puts one at risk of becoming a pre-diabetic or border-line diabetic where your blood sugar level is higher than it should be, but not yet in the diabetes range. “Pre-diabetes is a wake-up call to start taking care so as to avoid getting diabetes and its other complications like heart disease or stroke.”*
