Magnesium may also lower diabetes risk

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but new research suggests that nuts, grains, leafy green vegetables and other foods high in magnesium may keep diabetes at bay.

In two new studies, people who consumed the most magnesium in their diets were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. This type of diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to the effect of the glucose-processing hormone insulin.
