Plant protein may protect against type 2 diabetes, meat eaters at greater riskA new study adds to the growing body of evidence indicating that the source of dietary protein may play a role in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The researchers found that plant protein was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, while persons with a diet rich in meat had a higher risk.A new study adds to the growing body of evidence indicating that the source of dietary protein may play a role in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
