The research shows eating patterns that emphasize fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains and remove animal products improve risk factors for diabetes, including blood sugar, cholesterol, weight, blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease.

PCRM: Plant-based diets are best for diabetes prevention and treatment, according to a new review published in Advances in Nutrition. Researchers with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine reviewed studies looking at the evidence for type 2 diabetes prevention and treatment with a plant-based diet, as well as research that seeks to explain the mechanisms that make this approach so effective…

The research shows eating patterns that emphasize fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains and remove animal products improve risk factors for diabetes, including blood sugar, cholesterol, weight, blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease. Reduced fat intake and increased high-fiber carbohydrate intake improve diabetes and heart disease risk factors and reduce the need for medication for blood sugar control…

The review looked at several studies that show a plant-based diet can reduce type 2 diabetes risk, while eating meat, including poultry, can increase the risk. The authors cite an analysis of Adventist Health Study-2 participants who did not have diabetes: Vegan and lacto-ovo vegetarians had a 77% and 54% reduction in risk of developing diabetes, respectively, compared to non-vegetarians.
