Diet change could slow growth of diabetes

August 20, 2010

While the number of people with the disease has grown significantly over the past twenty years, researchers say a specific change may help.

British researchers reviewed several studies and discovered that eating one and a half extra servings of green vegetables a day reduces the risk of type two diabetes by 14 percent.

Researchers say vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, arugula and kale help prevent disease because of their high level of antioxidants, vitamin C and magnesium.
