New Study Shows Plant-Based Foods Can Reduce the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – May 11, 2023 – bettermoo(d) Food Corporation (CSE: MOOO), (OTCQB: MOOOF), (Frankfurt: 0I5A, WKN: A3D8PP) (the “Company” or “bettermoo(d) Food”), applauds new study published in the Scientific Reports journal, evidencing the adoption plant-based diets could reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
According to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports, replacing processed and red meat with plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, cereals, and legumes can significantly reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The study notes that diabetes is a significant public health concern, with an estimated 463 million adults living with diabetes in 2019, and the prevalence projected to reach 10.9 percent (700 million) by 2045.
The study, which evaluated data from five cohorts comprising 41,662 Finnish individuals aged 25 years and older, found that even minor but easily implementable shifts toward plant-based diets could lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, particularly among males. Partially substituting red meat or processed meat with fruits, cereals, or a combination of the plant-based foods slightly reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes, particularly in men. However, replacing meat intake with vegetables and/or legumes did not yield similar findings.
The study authors note that the protective effect of fruits against type 2 diabetes may be due to their rich polyphenol and fiber contents, as well as the improved maintenance of body weight associated with a high consumption of fruits. High whole-grain intake is also associated with lower fasting insulin levels and improved insulin sensitivity.
The study findings are timely given that the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes recently published new recommendations for managing diabetes, which include minimizing the consumption of red and processed meat and instead consuming minimally processed plant foods to manage diabetes.
The study authors hope that their findings and the new recommendations will encourage individuals to make changes in their diets and eventually result in more permanent and effective dietary changes in real-life settings.
“The recommendation to consume a more plant-based diet is direly needed to avert the expected 200 million new cases of diabetes worldwide in the next 20 years,” said Hana Kahleova, MD, PhD, a co-author of the recommendations. “The clinical research I conduct consistently shows the benefits of a plant-based diet for preventing and improving diabetes.”
The Company further announces that it previously entered into an agreement with Stride Report Inc. (“Stride”), an independent third-party, for the provision of marketing and investor awareness services. As part of the ongoing engagement, the Company has agreed to compensate Stride with a new media budget totaling CAD$80,000, plus applicable taxes (the “New Media Budget”).
