The researchers collected data on their diets and followed them up within 4 years 3 months.
Having analyzed the received data, the researchers discovered that those with a higher intake of legumes were 35% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes compared to those who consumed a smaller amount of legumes. Moreover, the study showed that lentils had the strongest association with a low risk of type 2 diabetes.
