White Rice “Raises Diabetes Risk for PCOS Women”

Women with PCOS already run a severely increased risk of diabetes. But they may benefit along with the general population from replacing white rice with the brown variety.
 
White rice causes steep rises in blood sugar and raises the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes, say Harvard researchers. On the other hand, brown rice is a healthier option as it releases glucose more gradually.
 
In a study of nearly 200,000 Americans, white rice consumption was linked to type 2 diabetes. Yet eating brown rice appeared to have the opposite effect, cutting the risk. People who ate two or more servings of brown rice per week had an 11% reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared with those who ate less than one serving a month.
 
Based on the results, the researchers estimated that replacing 50g or one-third of a typical serving of white rice with the same amount of brown rice would lead to a 16% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
