Vegetables Protect Against Diabetes

According to new Swedish research, the children of women who eat vegetables every day while they are pregnant are better protected against type 1 diabetes.

The study from the Sahlgrenska Academy at Gothenburg University and the Faculty of Health Sciences at Linköping University involved 6000 five year old children.

Clinical nutritionist Hilde Brekke tells the newspaper “Göteborgs-Posten” that this is the first study indicating a link between eating vegetables during pregnancy and the risk of children later contracting diabetes.
