Alarming Increase In Diabetes

(CNN)--Researchers believe they've come up with a cure for Type two diabetes: 600 calories a day.

That's how much diabetes patients in a new study were allowed to eat for two months.

Their diet included non-starchy vegetables and a diet drink.

At the end of the eight weeks, researchers say the 11 patients lost weight and none of them showed signs of diabetes.

The study was done by Newcastle University in Britain.

Obesity is the leading cause of Type two diabetes.
