Green, leafy veggies lower diabetes risk
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Eating your vegetables, particularly the green leafy ones, can help significantly reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Researchers at the University of Leicester analyzed data from previous studies involving 220,000 men and women.
They found that men and women who ate one-and-a-half extra servings of green leafy vegetables a day reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes by 14 percent.
Experts attribute the lowered risk to antioxidants and magnesium found in green leafy veggies like spinach.
The study is published in British Medical Journal.
