Diet Positive Impact on Risk of Diabetes

I am very sensitive towards the topic of diabetes and have high hopes concerning the news I’m sharing here.
The Mediterranean Diet has shown promise to lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, a Spanish study has shown as reported by Reuters.
This I saw on The Daily Meal:
“A study led by Dr. Jordi Salas-Salvado, a professor of nutrition at Rovira i Virgili University in Spain, tested 3,541 Spanish adults ages 55 to 80 with high risk for heart disease and found that those who were instructed to follow a Mediterranean diet were less likely to develop diabetes over four years than those who were instructed to follow a low-fat diet. Salas- Salvado attributes the success of the diet to its ability to lower the risk factors tied to diabetes: abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and elevated blood sugar and triglycerides.”

I hope the results from this study hold true going forward as this is very good news.
