Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine: A Low-Fat Plant-Based Diet Can Prevent Or Reverse Type 2 Diabetes
Did you know that 29.1 million Americans have diabetes? That means 4 out of 10 Americans are expected to develop diabetes during their lifetime. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death. And, Healthy Self Vegan feels people need to know that those who eat animal products [meat, poultry, dairy, and eggs] and fats [including oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, safflower oil, etc] have a higher risk of developing diabetes.
What is the best way to prevent, manage, or reverse Type 2 Diabetes? Well, according to the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine [PCRM] it is to eat a low-fat plant-based diet of vegetables, legumes, fruits and whole grains [Yes: High-fiber, complex carbohydrates]. The PCRM promotes including potatoes, rice, oats, beans, whole grain pasta, fruits, and vegetables on a diabetic's menu.
For more information of effectively using diet as a diabetes treatment please visit the following webpage: The Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine [PCRM].
