Just do a Google search on how consuming a diet rich in plant rich foods can prevent/reduce and/or perhaps even curing Type 2 Diabetes and you’ll see a number of primary studies from prestigious institutions.
For example, you’ll see on by Harvard entitled: Bottom Line Keeping weight in check, being active, and eating a healthy diet can prevent most cases of type 2 diabetes.
Another article published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition by a number of institutions, including the Department of Nutritional Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, the Department of Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Boston to name a couple that stated:
Based on what is known of the components of plant-based diets and their effects from cohort studies, there is reason to believe that vegetarian diets would have advantages in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
Here’s another by Leiden University Medical Center Department of Radiology in the Netherlands that found that cutting out calorific foods and eating healthier options for just four months is all diabetes sufferers need to do in order to beat their condition.
“It is striking to see how a relatively simple intervention of a very low-calorie diet effectively cures Type 2 diabetes,” says Dr Sebastian Hammer from the study. “Moreover, these effects are long term, illustrating the potential of this
method. Lifestyle interventions may have more powerful beneficial cardiac
effects than medication in these patients.”
I often wonder, what is it going to take to convince people that they do not need to walk around with burdensome, unhealthy conditions – that indeed they can be
healthy and live full vibrant lives!
