Dietary flavonoid intakes and risk of type 2 diabetes in US men and women

submitted by: nwedick
BACKGROUND: Data from mechanistic studies support a beneficial effect of specific flavonoids on insulin sensitivity. However, few studies have evaluated the relation between intakes of different flavonoid subclasses and type 2 diabetes. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to evaluate whether dietary intakes of major flavonoid subclasses (ie, flavonols, flavones, flavanones, flavan-3-ols, and anthocyanins) are associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes in US adults. DESIGN: We followed up a...
