Most cases of type 2 diabetes can be linked to making poor food choices, a new study finds.

Researchers from Tufts University in Boston linked poor diet to 14 million cases of type 2 diabetes — about 70% of new diagnoses globally — in 2018.

The biggest impact came from insufficient intake of whole grains, too much refined rice and wheat, and overconsumption of processed meat.<...

    In the study, the investigators searched four...

    Low-dose aspirin neither reduces nor increases the risk of dementia in adults with type 2 diabetes, a new study finds.
