Atoll vegetables to fight NCDs

From , 5:04 am on 31 May 2017

Australian scientists working with the Pacific Community have identified leafy vegetables which grow well on atolls that can reduce rates of non communicable diseases.

The study focused on Kirbati and Tuvalu and found most of the vegetables were already grown there but were not known to be fit for human consumption.

A research fellow at the University of Adelaide Dr Graham Lyons told Ben Robinson Drawbridge some of the vegetables can counter diabetes.
