Plant-based diet linked to lower risk for type 2 diabetes

Metabolite profiles demonstrate that eating a healthy plant-based diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and nuts can lower one’s risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to recent study findings published in Diabetologia. In an analysis of dietary profiles from people in three prospective cohorts, by Dr Frank B. Hu, a professor and chair of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and colleagues,  individuals who ate more healthy plant-based food had a different metabolite profile and a lower risk for developing type 2 diabetes than those who ate a diet rich in “unhealthy” plant-based foods, such as refined grains, potatoes and sweets.
