Cutting out meat is the new way to avoid developing diabetes, says the Daily Mail.
The latest advice comes from research showing meat lovers have a higher chance of diabetes even if they eat lots
of fruit and veg, according to the paper.
The study in women showed those who ate the most acid-producing foods – including meat, cheese
and fish – had a 50% higher odds of diabetes than those who ate the least. The effect wasn’t completely
compensated by fruit and vegetables intake – and was surprisingly strongest for slim women.
The French study authors said: ‘From a public health perspective, dietary recommendations should not only
incriminate specific food groups but also include recommendations on the overall quality of the diet, notably to
maintain an adequate acid balance.’
