Broadcasting from the UK: Healthful Plant-Based Diet May Lower Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

A healthful plant-based diet may lower the risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), according to a study published in the January issue of Diabetes & Metabolism.

Alysha S. Thompson, from Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland, and colleagues examined associations between healthful and unhealthful plant-based diet indices (hPDI and uPDI) and T2DM using prospective data from the U.K. Biobank involving participants aged 40 to 69 years at baseline.
