Green Leafy Vegetables May Reduce Risk of Type-2 Diabetes

A large meta-analysis recently found that eating green leafy vegetables may significantly reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes.

Researchers from the University of Leicester in the UK conducted the study which was published in the August 2010 issue of the British Medical Journal.

The researchers analyzed data on six studies with over 200,000 combined participants between 25-70 years of age.

The researchers initially found no association between type-2 diabetes and consumption of vegetables and fruit. They then focused solely on green leafy vegetables and found an impressive 14% reduction in diabetes risk among participants who consumed the most green leafy vegetables.

The researchers noted that further research is necessary to determine the mechanisms behind their findings, however, they believe that the benefits may be linked to the vegetables’ high antioxidant content.

There are many other benefits of eating more green leafy vegetables beyond diabetes prevention. Green leafy vegetables are high in many important vitamins, such as vitamin B and magnesium, which have been linked to reductions in the risk of certain cancers, stroke, hearing loss and birth defects.
