LONDON: You may want to cut down on the intake of lamb, beef, pork and poultry as they can give you diabetes.

Researchers from Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) in Singapore found that the higher intake of red meat and poultry is associated with significantly increased risk of developing diabetes, which is partially attributed to their higher content of heme iron in these meats.

The consumers of red meat were 23% likelier to develop diabetes whereas those who consume poultry products are at a risk of 15%.
