Boston: Fruit and vegetables are a treasure of health and nutrition and now a study has found that people with diabetes can live longer by eating fruit and vegetables to protect themselves from life threatening diseases such as diabetes, blood pressure and cancer.
Experts from the Harvard TH China School of Public Health have found from a study that diabetic patients can reduce the risk of many diseases and increase their lifespan by eating low-carbohydrate foods instead of meat, fruits and vegetables. About 10,000 diabetic patients have been evaluated in this context.
During the long-term follow-up, a total of 900 people developed cancer and 1,400 people suffered from heart disease. Among those who adopted a low carbohydrate diet, there was a significant reduction in all-cause mortality. All those questioned were diabetic and got 30 to 40 per cent of their calories from carbohydrates. Including white double bread and white rice and flour etc.
On the other hand, there were a large number of long-term diabetic patients who frequently ate whole grains, fruits and vegetables and had no signs of heart disease or cancer.
The summary of the research is that diabetic patients can improve their health and therefore extend their life by eating fruit and vegetables.
