Diabetes protection from fatty acids

Eating a diet that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids could help children with a family history of diabetes avoid developing the disease, according to a fresh report by researchers in America .
The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Head researcher Jill Norris reportedly commented: “It is a relatively large effect. It is exciting because it suggests we might be able to develop nutritional interventions to prevent diabetes.”
Diet is thought to influence the type 1 diabetes process. Animal studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids, found in a variety of foods, could help potential diabetics avoid the disease. This protective effect was proved in the study. Norris reportedly commented: “This is the first study to show this. This is all omega-3 fatty acids, not just the kind that are found in fish .”
