Rice and Diabetes

It’s a short article about Asian’s being prone to diabetes, based on a meta-analysis of 4 older studies.

eating rice is more dangerous <for> diabetics than consuming sugar.

Bottom line,

The conclusion was that consumption of rice was associated with increased risk  – 1 serving regularly equated to about 11 % increase in risk. (of having diabetes)

Ouch.  So much for “Rice can’t be bad for you- all of those Asian countries eat so much of it!”

Short, but to the point article:  http://www.thehealthsite.com/news/diabetes-rice-more-dangerous-than-sugar-ai0518/
