Animal Protein Raises Diabetes Risk

According to a new study in this month’s issue of Diabetes Care, diabetes risk increases with higher intake of total protein and animal protein. The study from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study and found that for every 5 percent of calories consumed from protein instead of carbohydrate or fat, the risk of developing diabetes increased 30 percent. Increased animal protein intake coincided with increased intakes of saturated fat, cholesterol, and heme iron, and with increased body mass index, waist circumference, and blood pressure. Vegetable protein intake was not associated with diabetes risk.

More and more evidence shows that a well-balanced plant-based diet helps prevent many diseases including diabetes. When we take care of our bodies, temples of the Holy Spirit, we are showing obedience to God.
