(NaturalNews) A diet high in green leafy vegetables can reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to a study conducted by researchers from Leicester University in the United Kingdom, and published in the British Medical Journal.

"Let not the beautiful woman glory in her pretty face or figure, neither the immaculate housekeeper glory in her ability: let not the woman of hospitality glory in her good cooking or homey atmosphere, nor the writer glory in her accomplishments.
But rather let her that glorieth glory in this, that she knows God and is growing in His wisdom and understanding." Jeremiah 9:24-25 (paraphrased)
