Italian researchers have found that increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids leads to a decrease in insulin resistance, a common precursor to the development of type 2 diabetes.

Low levels are associated with insulin resistance, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and obesity.)

Fasting Cuts Risk for Heart Disease and Diabetes
