Eating more red meat tied to higher diabetes risk

Journal of American Medical Association Internal Medicine just published a study about the correlation of red meat and diabetes risk. Currently in the US, about 26 million people have Diabetes, with 95 percent of those cases being Type 2 Diabetes. The study followed about 149,000 US men and women for 12-16 years and found that decreased consumption of red meat lowers the risk of Type 2 Diabetes by 14 % in the long run. What alternatives to red meat do you recommend to your patients for maintenance of a healthy diet?
