Vitamin C reduces risk of Type 2 Diabetes

A new Cambridge study has found that increased blood levels of vitamin C reduces
the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes by 62%. But dont expect this study to get much publicity (no money in it for the drug companies and their friends in the government and media..)
The new study followed 21,831 men and women for 12 years and analysed dietary
patterns using a food frequency questionnaire. The study also found a link
between fruit and vegetable intake and a reduced diabetes risk.
Lead author Anne-Helen Harding from Addenbrooke's Hospital in
Cambridge, England wrote, "the strong independent association
observed in this prospective study, together with biological plausibility, provides
persuasive evidence of a beneficial effect of vitamin C and fruit and vegetable
intake on diabetes risk".
