Research says olive oil can prevent diabetes

A research team published a study saying that active intake of olive oil and nuts can reduce the risk of heart disease by 30%. This year, the research team published another research in the same study, saying that active intake of olive oil and nuts can also Reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The study was published in the American Journal of Medicine, The Yearbook of Internal Medicine. According to the research results of this paper, the group that actively ingested olive oil had a 40% lower incidence of diabetes than the group that restricted fat intake.

Nuts do not reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes

In this study, the study selected 3,541 men (55-80 years old) with no diabetes but high risk of cardiovascular disease, and divided these people into “Mediterranean diets but more olive oil (about 50 a day). ML)” of the olive oil group, the “Mediterranean diet structure but the nut intake more” nut group, the “suppress fat intake” fat restriction group, and compared their average ratio of diabetes in 4.1 years.

The analysis showed that the group who consumed more olive oil had a 40% lower risk of developing diabetes than the group that restricted fat intake. Although the nut group can see the low risk of diabetes, it is not statistically valid.

Based on the results of the above study, the research team concluded that even if the calorie intake is not limited, as long as the Mediterranean diet structure of olive oil is adhered to, the risk of diabetes in people at high risk of cardiovascular disease can be reduced.
