According to the Daily Mail, a study has found that plant-based eating could help stabilise blood sugar levels and reverse diabetes.
The article’s author explains: “Scientists believe removing animal fats could help cure the condition, leaving patients free from the disease. They said changes to diet could be used as an alternative treatment for type 2 diabetes.”
Dr. Neal Barnard, author of the study, told the Daily Express, “No drug comes close to offering those with diabetes this kind of relief.” Researchers found that eating only vegetarian and vegan foods could also have positive “side effects, such as weight loss, improved blood pressure, and lowered cholesterol.” Plant-based foods have a substantial effect on sugar levels, according to an NDTV report, which may help reduce the need for insulin injections and medications.
Time and again, research proves that nutritious vegan foods are beneficial for your health. Plant-based eating is a win-win situation; you get to live a longer, healthier life, and you’re letting farmed animals live their lives too.
