Have a chronic health condition it is a serious thing, not in vain heart disease, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes, are considered the main causes of death in the world. In fact, according to data released by the World Health Organization, are responsible for 63% of annual deaths.
Of specific way in recent years there has been a increased cases of diabetes, which the most recognized specialists directly relate to the Lifestyle from Modern society. Although it seems that there is an awakening to live healthier, we face a major health challenge, especially considering the high consumption of processed foods and fast foods.
It is well known that one of the main factors that trigger diabetes is the Lifestyle and foodn, that is why the main measure is make dietary adjustments and of course the adequate medical follow-up. Taking into account that mwings of 34 million Americans suffer from diabetes, according to data released by Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is worth paying special attention to our daily habits and customs, in these cases between the 90 and 95% have “type 2” diabetes, which is caused by insulin resistance (as opposed to “type 1,” which is caused by a failure in insulin production). The truth is insulin management It is a very important health issue, in fact according to information released with Mayo Clinic if insulin resistance is not adequately controlled, they rise the blood sugar levels and provoke serious health consequences and life threatening.
It is true that some risk factor’s of diabetes are out of our control, however others are “Modifiable” including the body weight. Since the weight is so influenced by diet, for years the most renowned scientists have tried to identify which foods are associated with a higher and lower risk of diabetes. The studies they don’t lie and they are forceful, it has various references in which I know has shown that excess sugar in the diet, is a factor that contributes directly to a increased risk of diabetes. The studies have also shown that high-fat diets, especially those high in saturated fats (for example, animal fats), are associated with insulin resistance, What is it the basis of type 2 diabetes.
In such a way it is easy to understand the reason why various organizations of public health, continues to recommend to Americans that limit your fat intake less than 30% of your total calories and consume only unsaturated fats and Omega-3 fatty acids (generally found in vegetable fats and some fatty fish). This also means eliminate saturated fat and trans.
Specifically in last years, scientists have wondered much more deeply about the role of fat in the diet and in fact they have discovered that it is a subject with many more nuances of which it was believed. It is because of that researchers from German Center for Diabetes Research they set out to investigate the relationship between diabetes and various types of dietary fats.
The results were overwhelming and surprising, based in 23 existing clinical studies and which were published in the scientific journal: PLOS Medicine. The team found no association between the consumption of fat in the diet and the risk of type 2 diabetes, and also concluded that vegetable oil partnered with a lower risk of diabetes, but only in centities less than 13 grams daily. Taking into account that these revelations completely contradict the current recommendations, everyone’s question is: Should we really consume 13 grams of vegetable oil a day to reduce the risk of diabetes?
exist diverse opinions in this regard, the main question is that the team of scientists of the German Center for Diabetes Research did not specify what vegetable oil they could be talking. And it is generally well known that for years, certain vegetable oils have not received a scientific seal for approval.
The reality is that they exist some types of vegetable oils What do we know they are harmful and that its consumption is associated with negative consequences for health, and those are the variants that precisely avoid at all costs. And that in fact are characterized by being widely used in the food industry, that is, in everything processed, among which the Palm oil, and most of the varieties of seed oils: rapeseed, sunflower, safflower, rice bran, grape seed and corn.
The results of this study aroused many doubts and curiosity, so the digital medium Eat This, was given the task of seeking the opinion of a recognized specialist the doctor Leann Poston, hoping to better understand what to do with these novel results. Who according to your experience do not take study so seriously, because in a certain way despite being endorsed by good scientists, it did not reach the degree of establish specific dietary recommendations. What means that they simply confirm that people who consume a a certain amount of vegetable oil, they have less tendency to develop diabetes. Which in a way we have known for many years, especially with immense benefits consumption of olive oil, we have all kinds of scientific studies who recommend it.
The conclusion about better and more effective recommendations, to reduce the risk of suffer from diabetes; remain focused on follow a healthy and balanced diet. And without a doubt trends like Mediterranean diet, are still one of the best and most recommended schemes. It is a diet that goes beyond a nutritional guideline, its bases make up a lifestyle that promotes health, physical and mental well-being, and of course longevity and healthy body weight.
