A study of African American and Chinese women shows a possible link between a high-carb diet and type two diabetes.
Experts say refined carbohydrates, like some pastas and rice, increase blood sugar and the demand for insulin.
A study of over 60 thousand Chinese women found those who ate the most carbs a day had a nearly 30 percent increased risk for type two diabetes compared to those who ate the least.
However, a study of 40 thousand African American women found those who kept a healthy weight and incorporated high amounts of whole grains into their diet had a nearly 60 percent reduced risk for the disease.
