Omega-6 Fats May Help Prevent Type 2 Diabetes: Study
Fatty foods are always considered bad for one’s health. However there are certain fats that are actually good for one’s health. Omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fats are just a few among the good fats that one needs to consider adding in their diet. Eating a diet rich in omega-6 polyunsaturated fats may significantly reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a study. Soybean, sunflower oils and nuts are a few of the foods that are rich in Omega-6 fats.
According to the study, a simple change in diet might protect people from developing type 2 diabetes which has reached alarming levels around the world,” said Jason Wu, of The George Institute for Global Health in Australia.
“The people involved in the study were generally healthy and were not given specific guidance on what to eat. Yet those who had the highest levels of blood omega-6 markers had a much lower chance of developing type 2 diabetes,” said Professor Dariush Mozaffarian, from Tufts University in the US. Meanwhile there were also reports which stated that omega-6, which is found in bean and seed oils such as soybean and sunflower oils and in nuts, may have negative health effects, such as inflammation leading to the increased risk of chronic diseases. However, contrary to the reports, a new research recently published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal explored these concerns in studies from around the world.
