Diabetes Type 2: careful with rice!

Too often eat white rice increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Products with more fibers are a better choice for health. 

White rice and of type 2 diabetes: greater risk
The study was conducted by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health. They wanted to determine whether there is indeed a link between eating white rice and the risk of type 2 diabetes . They wanted that relationship also calculable. They analyzed the results of various studies in which the quantity of absorbed white rice and the prevention of diabetes of type 2 were indicated. The studied data were all together about 350 000 people. There were also data from Asian countries - where the consumption of white rice traditionally much higher - compared with those from the West. 

10% greater risk per serving of white rice
The connection was indeed established. The difference in risk between the groups with the lowest consumption of white rice and those with the highest consumption - Asians - but was just 50%. In western countries, the increase in risk only 12%. But it remains a globally established fact: with each additional serving of white rice per day increases the risk of type 2 diabetes by 10%.

Why is there a link between white rice and diabetes type 2?

The experts also have an explanation: many starchy foods such as white rice does the sugar in our blood to rise rapidly. And a diet that increases blood sugar, is unfortunately one of the causes of diabetes type 2.
White rice is actually a highly refined cereal that contains almost no fiber more. Fibers and protect our network against diabetes.

Is white rice bad for health ? And what about other refined grains ?

You see it so, white rice is not really good for people with an increased risk of diabetes. But rice is not the only culprit. Many of our everyday products have the same properties, starting with white bread and pasta.
The message of the authors of the study is not that white rice is bad for you. A few servings per week can not hurt, for anyone. Just make for a varied diet rich in vegetable fibers. This is crucial to the type 2 diabetes to occur.
Perhaps you now as an accompaniment to your vegetables brown rice take. The preparation is not difficult, the texture is slightly different and you get valuable nutrients in them.
