To lower one's risk for type 2 diabetes, choose brown rice over white. That's the word from a large-scale study recently presented during the American Heart Association's Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism Conference.The analysis involved data on the long-term dietary consumption of more than 39,000 men and more than 157,000 women. Results:

Those who had five or more servings of white rice a week were found to be 17 percent more likely to develop the condition, compared to those who had less than one serving of white rice a month.

Those who had two or more servings of brown rice a week were 11 percent less likely to develop the condition, compared to those who had less than one serving of brown rice a month.
