Leafy greens may cut diabetes risk- (Aug, 2010 bioscience headlines)

In a study of the effects of fruit and veggie intake on diabetes risk, kale and cabbage seem unusually protective.

Researchers writing today in the British Medical Journal found that -- in data from six previous studies covering some 22,000 participants --people who ate lots of leafy vegetables were less likely to develop type II diabetes than people who didn't. An increase of 1.15 servings per day is associated with a 14% decrease in new diabetes diagnoses, the researchers say.
The six different studies all used slightly different definitions of "leafy vegetables." But the study authors say that the term should include: brassicas, such as cabbage, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower; Compositae, such as lettuce; and umbelliferous vegetables, which are plants grown for their leaves and stems and are often consumed as herbs, such as parsley, dill, and fennel.

Other leafy vegetables such as spinach are also included.Read more? >>
