Plant-based diet may lower type 2 diabetes risk

July 1, 2016

A substantially lower risk for the development of type 2 diabetes is found with consuming a plant-based diet, according to study findings published in PLOS Medicine.

“This study highlights that even moderate dietary changes in the direction of a healthful plant-based diet can play a significant role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes,” Ambikas Satija, a postdoctoral fellow in the department of nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said in a press release. “These findings provide further evidence to support current dietary recommendations for chronic disease prevention.”
