More Evidence That High-Fiber Diet May Curb Type 2 Diabetes Risk
Well if this is true then people eating loads of fiber like me should be feeling a whole lot better now…
People who get a lot of fiber in their diet may be lowering their odds for type 2 diabetes, new research shows.
“We are not certain why this might be, but potential mechanisms could include feeling physically full for longer, prolonged release of hormonal signals, slowed down nutrient absorption, or altered fermentation in the large intestine,” wrote study author Dagfinn Aune, a Ph.D. student affiliated with the Imperial College London in England.
His team, which published the findings May 26 in the journal Diabetologia, looked at data on more than 29,000 Europeans tracked for an average of 11 years.
