Excessive White Rice Intake Increases Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

According to research, consuming too much white rice in one sitting increases an individual's chances of developing Diabetes Type 2.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health examined past studies regarding the association of developing Diabetes Type 2 to the amount of increased intake of white rice. These results were taken from the studies in Japan, China, Australia, and the USA.

White rice has high values of GI concentrations and is the leading rice consumed globally. This has been associated with the increased risk of developing Diabetes Type 2.

Comparing the results both from Eastern and Western countries, research concludes that there was a stronger association amongst women that with men. Moreover, the results showed that the more white rice consumed, the greater the risk of developing Diabetes Type 2. With each increased serving of white rice (approximately 158g per serving), the chances of developing the disease increased up to 10 per cent.

Researchers conclude:

"Higher white rice intake is associated with a significantly elevated risk of Type 2 Diabetes."

This applies to both western and eastern countries. Furthermore, the risk is higher in Asian countries due to its higher consumption of white rice. They further advised that individuals consume whole grain and by doing so decreases the risk of developing the worldwide epidemic.
