A New Study Shows That Eating Almonds May Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

December 14, 2010: 05:54 PM EST

A new study, published in the June 2010 Journal of the American College of Nutrition, clearly shows that eating almonds can help treat—and may even prevent—type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Nearly 16 million Americans already have pre-diabetes (the precursor to type 2 diabetes) and half of all Americans could develop some form of the disease within the next decade. The 16-week study—one of the first to put a number on prevention data—confirms that following the American Diabetes Association’s recommendation of obtaining 20 percent of total calories from almonds can reduce LDL cholesterol levels and increase insulin sensitivity in those with pre-diabetes.
