The Dish that Slashes your Diabetes Risk
Make a stir-fry with brown rice and you’ll be serving up some diabetes prevention. Researchers in Rome found that a veggie-packed diet lowered insulin resistance-a precursor to diabetes-by 25 percent.
And a study from the Harvard School of Public Health showed that people who ate a cup or more of brown rice a week had an 11 percent lower chance of developing diabetes than those who ate less. “The antioxidants in whole grains and vegetables prevent cell damage,” says SAPE contributing editor Cynthia Sass, R.D., “which can hinder your body’s ability to process insulin.”
