Does a vegetarian diet reduce the occurrence of diabetes?

High ingestion of vegetarian diets may significantly cut down diabetes risk.

This study assessed the role of vegetarian diets in the prevention of diabetes. Researchers reviewed 21-year data from 1960 to 1981from studies that examined 25,698 White Seventh Day Adventist subjects.

Researchers observed a higher risk of diabetes among non vegetarians than in male and female vegetarian subjects. The increased risk of diabetes among non vegetarians, particular meat consumers, was found to be stronger in males than in females. The findings of this study suggest that generous intake of vegetarian diets may exert a protective effect against diabetes development in both males and females.
