John Salley Urges Basketball Fans to Block Diabetes

John Salley Urges Basketball Fans to Block DiabetesNBA champion John Salley urges basketball fans to use vegan foods to up their defenses against diabetes in PCRM’s colorful new print ad.

In the ad, which recently appeared in HOOP, the National Basketball Association’s official publication, Salley lets readers know that “one out of three kids is going to develop diabetes in their lifetime.” More than 23 million children and adults in the United States—7.8 percent of the population—already have diabetes.

Salley’s power play for protecting against diabetes? A plant-based diet. A recent PCRM clinical study found that a low-fat vegan diet treats type 2 diabetes more effectively than a standard diabetes diet and is more effective than oral diabetes drugs. Other studies have shown that plant-based diets also help reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
