(7/23/19) Chowing down on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts could help lower your risk of type-2 diabetes.
That’s the latest from a study published in an internal medicine journal on Monday.
Experts say on average, you’re 23 percent less likely to get diabetes if you eat a healthy plant-based diet.
Cutting back on sugar-sweetened beverages and refined carbs cuts your risk by another 30 percent.
They key here isn’t just eating plant-based, it’s eating healthy foods that are plant-based.
Otherwise, experts say your risk of diabetes actually goes up, especially if you don’t exercise much.
