Lifewatch: Type Two Diabetes

WILMINGTON -- Eating more vegetables could reduce your risk of developing type two diabetes.

New research shows women who eat about 5 cups of produce a day had a 28% lower risk of developing the disease than those who ate less than 1.5 cups a day.

Vegetables packed with antioxidants, fiber, and magnesium help reduce insulin resistance, which in turn, lowers the risk of diabetes.

To help get more diabetes-fighting foods into your diet, try putting some spinach in your omelet or carrots in your muffins.
