Thanksgiving Turkey Can Help Avoid Diabetes Risk


Many people have heard that over-consumption of red meat can increase risk for strokes and heart attacks, but did you know that in a recent study, red meat–particularly processed red meat–is associated with a higher risk for Type 2 Diabetes?  So perhaps this Thanksgiving while you’re enjoying (in moderation!) your turkey and trimmings (especially the salad with nuts!), you can also feel good that you’re taking a small step to avoid diabetes!
