Diabetes and Vegetarian Health

Vegetarians Have Much Lower Risk of Type II Diabetes

Studies show that vegetarians have a substantially lower risk of type II diabetes than non-vegetarians. The link between meat consumption and incidence of diabetes remains after contributory factors such as weight, physical activity and other dietary factors are accounted for.

Vegetarian Diet Reflects Diabetic Dietary Guidelines

An average vegetarian diet closely matches dietary guidelines (eg. British Diabetic Association's recommendations) for diabetic patients.

Vegetarian diets tend to be high in complex carbohydrates and dietary fibre, which has a beneficial effect on carbohydrate metabolism, lowering blood sugar levels.

Vegetarians: Less Obesity and Lower Cholesterol - Both Affect Diabetes

The leanness of vegetarians also contributes to reduced incidence of diabetes. Diabetes is often associated with raised blood cholesterol levels and a vegetarian diet confers protection against this.
