Researchers have conducted a study on more than 200,000 individuals who don’t have diabetes. Some of them are eating brown rice and whole grain, and the second batch simply eats white rice. The participants were assessed every 2 hours and none of them are showing that they have cases of diabetes before the beginning of the test but after the test result more than 10,000 people has now type 2 diabetes.
The result simply shows that people who ate more than five rice a week, has a 17 percent of developing type 2 diabetes than those who are eating less white rice.
‘We estimated that replacing 50 grams/day intake of white rice with the same amount of brown rice was associated with a 16 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes, whereas the same replacement with whole grains as a group was associated with a 36 percent lower diabetes risk,’ wrote Dr. Qi Sun, of Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, and colleagues.
