Harvard Researchers Find Link Between White Rice Consumption and Diabetes After analyzing results of two studies in China and Japan and two in the US and Australia, a significant trend was discovered: The more white rice consumed, the higher the risk of type 2 diabetes. Washington Depot, CT (I- Newswire) June 25, 2012 - Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health recently found a link between high intake of white rice and a significantly elevated risk of type 2 diabetes, especially among Asian populations. The Chinese eat an average of four portions of white rice daily while those in the Western world eat less than five portions weekly. After analyzing results of two studies in China and Japan and two in the US and Australia, a significant trend was discovered: The more white rice consumed, the higher the risk of type 2 diabetes. Increased servings of white rice contributed to a 10% increase in risk. The authors cited higher glycemic index and fewer vitamins and minerals in white rice when compared to whole- grain brown rice as possible reasons, along with trends toward less physical activity and overeating as possible reasons for the connection. "Our bodies are not adapted to process concentrated carbohydrates, and overconsumption will raise blood sugar levels too high," say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the new books TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH) and The TurboCharged Mind (January 2012, BSH). "This sets off a cascade of adverse physiological events. Even consistent consumption of whole- grain products can have the same effect. In healthy populations where the incidence of type 2 diabetes is low, consumption of concentrated carbohydrates is also low." "Following a diet based predominately on a wide variety of moisture- rich, fresh, whole foods, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds and quality animalbased proteins is best for us," add the Griesels. "Such a diet will result in sufficient essential nutrients for optimal health."
