London – A new study has revealed that women who eat meat-based diet containing too much acid are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

Researchers, who studied a group of 66,485 women, pointed that typically acidic foods consist of animal products, but fruits and vegetables helped to neutralise acidity, the Independent reported.

Chronic acidosis, which is a condition caused by increased acidity in the blood and body tissues, reduces insulin sensitivity.

Scientists recorded 1,372 new cases of type 2 diabetes over a period of 14 years and found that women whose potential renal acid load (Pral) scores were in the top 25 percent were at 56 percent greater risk of developing diabetes than those in the bottom 25 percent.
