A lower risk of diabetes if you do not eat meat
As you know, there are several benefits to our health if we do not enjoy so much meat. But how does meat failure affect the risk of diabetes? Researchers have now found that a vegan or vegetarian diet reduces the risk of diabetes by almost a quarter.
A recent study by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has shown that a vegan or vegetarian diet can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by almost a quarter. The results of the study were published in the English magazine "JAMA Internal Medicine".
23% lower risk of type 2 diabetes
An analysis of over 300,000 respondents found that those with a plant-based diet were 23 percent less susceptible to type 2 diabetes associated with obesity. Vegetable foods are rich in antioxidants that protect against the onset of type 2 diabetes. T Improve insulin sensitivity, a blood-regulating hormone. In addition, vegetable nutrition reduces weight gain and helps fight inflammation.
People should generally have more fruit and vegetables
The study is the first of its kind, which also distinguishes between healthy and less healthy plant foods. The first category included fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and legumes. The second category includes potatoes, white flour, sugar and modest amounts of animal products, explains the researchers. Protecting from diabetes increases when people eat healthy vegetarian food and generally consume less unhealthy foods. Data indicate the importance of plant nutrition to achieve or maintain good health, researchers report. People should choose fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, tofu and other healthy vegetable foods as the basis of their diet.
Many cases of type 2 diabetes could be prevented by appropriate nutrition
The results of the study show that diet is of key importance in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. T The vast majority of people with type 2 diabetes can avoid disease with lifestyle changes, explains the researchers. Herbal nutritional patterns have become more and more popular in recent years. Therefore, the authors considered it crucial to quantify the general context of such a diet with the risk of diabetes, especially since such forms of nutrition can vary greatly depending on their food composition.
Proper nutrition and proper exercise protect against diabetes
Previous studies have already shown that plant-based nutrition can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. However, there have been no studies to analyze any epidemiological evidence. According to researchers, the results of the current study support claims that plant-based diet protects against type 2 diabetes. T The best way to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes is to maintain healthy body weight with balanced nutrition and regular exercise. (V)
