Healthy Plant-Based Diets Help Reduce Diabetes Risk

A new study by UPI shows that people who follow a strict plant-based diet have less chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

The study revealed that eating plant-based diets reduces the risk of developing diabetes by 23% as compared to taking non-plant based diets.

Researchers examined the data of more than 307,000 patients, of which 23,544 were having type 2 diabetes.

The information demonstrates healthier plant-based alternatives can reduce blood pressure and weight while raising insulin sensitivity. On the other hand, eating unhealthy plant-based food would increase the risk of death by 11%.

Qi Sun, a researcher at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and study senior author said, “Overall, these data highlighted the importance of adhering to plant-based diets to achieve or maintain good health, and people should choose fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, tofu, and other healthy plant foods as the cornerstone of such diets.”
