More Vegetables for Mom Decreases Risk of Diabetes for Baby

From Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)

In a new study published in Pediatric Diabetes, researchers found that women who consumed the least amount of vegetables during pregnancy were more likely to have babies who developed type 1 diabetes.

Compared with women who ate vegetables daily, those consuming vegetables only three to five times per week had a 71 percent increased risk of having a child with diabetes.
