A Dutch study indicates that adults in good health who drink one or two glasses of alcohol per day face a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those people who avoid alcohol entirely.
The study, which ran for a 10-year period, included 35,000 adults. Those people that consumed alcohol in moderation and met the three or four signifiers of a healthy lifestyle faced a 40 per cent lower likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes .
The research group TNO, who helped to carry out the analysis, reportedly commented: “The results of the investigation show that moderate alcohol consumption can play a part in a healthy lifestyle to help reduce the risk of developing diabetes type 2 .”
