"We have made great strides in chronic disease research for evidence of effective treatment and effective prevention," he said Michelle Vienna, Assistant Professor of Nutrition at Loma Linda University's School of Public Health and author of the study - It holds promise for people with risk factors for chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, that dietary changes can help improve factors that play a potential role in the development of the disease. It would be useful to conduct strictly controlled feeding studies and post-prandial metabolic studies that characterize the control of the quantity of carbohydrates to confirm the results of this study ”.
