TUCKING in to a fried breakfast each day could increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes by 50 per cent, according to research.
The consumption of just two rashers of bacon, a single sausage, or a small burger, dramatically increases the chance of developing the illness.
Researchers at Harvard University also discovered that 100g of red meat every day increases the likelihood of type 2 diabetes by a fifth.
But processed meat including mince, ham and salami have a far greater effect.
Statistics show that 11 per cent of people living in Andalucia suffer from type 2 diabetes, while 2.5 million Britons have the illness, with a further million suspected undiagnosed cases.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body metabolises sugar, the body’s major fuel supply.It occurs when the body fails to produce enough insulin to control its blood sugar levels.
Type 2 diabetes – which has been linked to obesity – is far more common than type 1, accounting for 90 per cent of all cases.
Your body either resists the effects of insulin, or fails to produce enough insulin to preserve a normal glucose level.
Some of the telltale signs are; thirst, frequent urination, tiredness, and recurrent infections on the skin.
Research found that 11 per cent of people living in Andalucia have developed type 2 Diabetes.
As well as being strongly advised to cut back on red meat, it is important to inject some exercise into our lifestyles.
Regular exercise cuts down on the problem of insulin resistance and tackles the root source of type 2 Diabetes.
We should lower our intakes that could put us in the red, and exercise our bodies and our palettes with a wider range of healthy foods – fish, lentils and pulses- to name a few.
