Eating meat during breastfeeding is associated with an increased risk of type 1 diabetes, a consequence perhaps of meat glycotoxins or paratuberculosis bacteria that may be passed though breast milk.

What’s this about paraTB bacteria having been found in the bloodstream of the majority of tested diabetics tested? You must have missed the last video, Does Paratuberculosis in Milk Trigger Type 1 Diabetes? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-paratuberculosis-in-milk-trigger-type-1-diabetes). I will further explore this hypothesis in my follow-up video Does Paratuberculosis in Meat Trigger Type 1 Diabetes? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-paratuberculosis-in-meat-trigger-type-1-diabetes).
The vast majority of cases of diabetes in the U.S. are type 2, though. Ironically, meat may also play a role there. See Why is Meat a Risk Factor for Diabetes? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/why-is-meat-a-risk-factor-for-diabetes) and How May Plants Protect Against Diabetes? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-may-plants-protect-against-diabetes/). A good short summary can be found in How Not to Die from Diabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-not-to-die-from-diabetes/).
