Yes, Type 2 diabetes released this statement today.

A big new study finds a robust correlation between red meat consumption and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And it held even when they controlled for calories and fat.

NPR's piece

My Dad has type 2 and is definitely from the school of "every meal must have meat"! To his credit though he's done an excellent job of managing it since being diagnosed- exercising every day, losing weight, avoiding sweets. I haven't had any success getting him to eat more vegan meals so it encourages me that more and more studies like this are getting press and raising awareness.

Funny...a couple months ago, my doctor told me a vegan diet was really bad for anyone who is predisposed to diabetes because OMG! Carbs!. Protein good! Oatmeal bad! She's a really good doctor but she is not allowed to dispense nutrition advice to me.
