The statistics demonstrate beyond any doubt that type 2 diabetes has become a major American and Western European health issue. Changes in diet and lifestyle are the best preventative measures. Research suggests that tofu is one of the foods that can help to reduce the risks. A number of studies made on animals show that soy improves the way the body absorbs insulin. Research on humans in Asia found that those who consumed 200 grams of soy per day were less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Additional research should investigate if this also applies to western populations.
