Type 2 Diabetes Risk by a Third

The study, published online in the journal PLOS Medicine and funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, surveyed 200,000 health professionals for more than 20 years.

Researchers used a diet index in which plant foods received positive scores and animal foods and less healthy plant foods (sweet beverages, refined grains) received reverse scores.

Study Results

  • Overall, a healthy plant-rich diet that was low in animals foods was associated with a 20 percent reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • The most healthy plant-based diet (centered around whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts) was associated with a 34 percent reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • A less-healthy plant-based diet (more refined and processed foods and sugary drinks) was associated with a 16 percent increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Even a modest reduction in animal-based foods (from 5-6 servings to 4 servings per day) was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.

“This study highlights that even moderate dietary changes in the direction of a healthful plant-based diet can play a significant role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes,” said lead study author Ambika Satija, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Nutrition.
