This might be obvious to some but a new study shows that bicycling can help reduce the risk for developing type 2 diabetes. It's nice to have the research, and a Danish study did just that by assessing over 50,000 men and women. The best part is, it's never too late to the start. All of the participants in the study were between the ages of 50 and 65. After a 5 year period from the beginning of the experiment their health was assessed and those that pedaled were at 20% less risk than those who didn't. The study's leader, Martin Rasmussen, from the University of Southern Denmark stated, "We find it especially interesting that those who started cycling had a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, given that the study population were men and women of middle and old age."
