Preventing Diabetes with Alcohol Consumption!

Yes, you read this right! Daily consumption of alcohol can prevent Type II Diabetes! The findings were disclosed in a study held in Holland done by the National Institute for Public Health and Environment.

There are conditions to this wonderful news, however: The first is that you must be healthy, which they define as adhering to three of four healthy lifestyles: Not smoking, weight control, balanced diet, and exercise.

If you fall into that category, read on!

You must be healthy to reap the benefit of alcohol consumption when it comes to Type II Diabetes.

The Study's Results... 40% Less Chance to Develop Type II Diabetes

The study followed 35,000 healthy people for 10 years and found that these individuals who consumed one glass of alcohol per day (women) and two glasses per day (men), were 40% less likely to develop Type II Diabetes than those who didn't drink alcohol. (The type of alcohol was not specified.)

This leads to Type II Diabetes! Take responsibility for what you eat and drink.

The Madam Aphrodite™ Solution

As a lover of wine, and a daily consumer of vino, I am excited by this news. The benefits of wine, particularly red wine and the resveratrol it contains, is so good for us that 60 Minutes did a segment about it.

Type II Diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke and worse if it's not controlled and is nothing to fool with. It afflicts 180 million people around the globe and is often the result of obesity. It's up to us what we put into our mouths; it's a matter of personal responsibility!

Get healthy, eat well, exercise, don't smoke... and if you're healthy (as defined by the criteria in this post), have a glass of the bubbly everyday to congratulate yourself on your efforts! It's better for you than you thought! And always get the approval of your heath-care professional before proceeding!

Where is that study? I was unable to find the study that was cited in the article, there was one very important caveat to the study, in the article you cited, they stated: “There are conditions to this wonderful news, however: The first is that you must be healthy, which they define as adhering to three of four healthy lifestyles: Not smoking, weight control, balanced diet, and exercise.” (Aphrodite, n.d.) That disclaimer changes the discussion because the population they are studying are not at risk anyway, so we would expect them to be less likely to develop diabetes.

Dangerous Article!!!
