Healthy Eating And Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes – Part 1 of 3
Healthy Eating And Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes. Healthy eating habits compress women’s risk of type 2 diabetes, new fact-finding finds. “This study suggests that a healthy overall diet can play a vital role in preventing type 2 diabetes, particularly in minority women who have elevated risks of the disease,” said about author Jinnie Rhee, a postdoctoral fellow in the division of nephrology at Stanford University School of Medicine. The researchers analyzed data from thousands of white, black, Hispanic and Asian women in the United States who provided report about their eating habits every four years and were followed for up to 28 years.
A healthy diet featured lower intake of saturated and trans fats, sugar-sweetened drinks, and red and processed meats. It included higher intake of cereal fiber, polyunsaturated fats, coffee and nuts. Polyunsaturated fats count soybean, safflower, canola and corn oils, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Rich cheeses, butter, in one piece milk, ice cream and palm and coconut oils are harmful saturated fats.
