Eating a healthy diet can help prevent type 2 diabetes.
This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United States.
Research from Massachusetts General Hospital found that eating a healthy diet also reduced the risk of developing the disease in people with a genetic predisposition to diabetes.
Genes and lifestyle factors are considered important factors in the development of type 2 diabetes and previous research reports have shown that a healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of diabetes.
The new study examined three large-scale research reports involving more than 900,000 people.
Research has found that eating unhealthy or substandard foods, regardless of genetic risk, increases the risk of type 2 diabetes by up to 30%.
The researchers said that the findings provide evidence that the risk of developing diabetes from a harmful diet is as high as the risk of genetic predisposition. Such information could help develop strategies to prevent diabetes. Will
