American Diabetes Association
Recognizes Benefits of
The Glycemic Index
The American Diabetes Association (July 2008) embraced the results of a huge clinical trial at Harvard School of Public Health, and the benefits of the glycemic index.
In a study of more than 85,000 people over a 20-year period, the Glycemic Index was validated in preventing Type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Researchers concluded that:
•Tracked for over 2 decades, “Women had a 250 percent higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if they consistently ate foods high in Glycemic Load, like sugar-sweetened fruit juice, refined sugary cereal, and bread.”
•“Being carb smart helps keep diabetes at bay”
