Cod Liver Oil Prevents Insulin-Dependent Diabetes

Type 1 insulin-dependent diabetes is among the most common chronic diseases with onset in childhood. Previous studies have shown that vitamin D was related to diabetes prevention so it should be no surprise that cod liver oil, which is loaded with natural vitamin D, should be helpful in preventing diabetes. The authors speculate that the fats in cod liver oil, EPA and DHA, improve the immune response and decrease the likelihood of self-destruction so the pancreatic cells that produce insulin are spared.
