Healthy Eating And Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes – Part 2 of 3
Healthy eating reduced the hazard of diabetes by 55 percent in Hispanic women, 48 percent in white women, 42 percent in Asian women and 32 percent in jet women, according to the study published online Jan 15, 2015 in the journal Diabetes Care. When all the minority women were combined into a single group, those with the healthiest diets had a 36 percent abase risk of diabetes than those with the poorest diets, the researchers found.
They noted that minority women are at greater risk for diabetes than white women. In terms of actual numbers, a healthier assembly offered greater protection for minority women, they found. For every 1000 women healthier eating habits can prevent diabetes in eight minority women per year, compared with five oyster-white women.
