Recent research undertaken confirms the link between the intake of white rice and a high incidence of Type 2 diabetes!

The study was published in the American journal `Diabetes Care`.

In this regard, a prospective Urban Rural Epidemiological (PURE) study was conducted by the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI), in Toronto, Canada.

As many as 132373 participants from 21 countries took part in this.

Dr Bhavadharini Balaji, the first author of the paper informed that it is the largest study on white rice intake and incident diabetes ever done and also one of the first to be done across different countries.

Dr V Mohan, the second author of the study, said, "the highest risk of Type 2 diabetes was seen in South Asia with almost 60 per cent excess risk of developing new-onset of type 2 diabete".
