Intake of whole grain foods and risk of type 2 diabetes: results from three prospective cohort studies

Study (n=18 629) found higher consumption of total whole grains and several commonly eaten whole grain foods significantly linked to lower risk of type 2 diabetes, with 29% lower rate in those in highest category for consumption compared with those in the lowest category.

SPS commentary:

Another study in BMJ reported an inverse association between plasma vitamin C, carotenoids, and their composite biomarker score, and incident type 2 diabetes, providing evidence from objectively measured biomarkers that even a modest increase in fruit and vegetable intake could help in prevention.
