It’s All in Numbers: What Would the HealthCare Be Like Without Math

Let’s face it, math has a major role in every aspect of our life. Take even arts like music, music meters. tempos are all again based on math. Healthcare is not an exception, moreover healthcare studies are all statistically based, so yet again, math is a major link.

The research, published in Diabetes Care, recorded the dietary habits of 71,346 female nurses ages 38-63 years for 18 years, with contact every four years. None of the group initially had diabetes, heart disease, or cancer.

The results of eating three servings of fruit and green vegetables a day was not associated with any increase in diabetes. Instead, eating whole fruit was associated with a significant reduction in risk of the disease. Eating one green vegetable a day also statistically lowered diabetes risk. However, women who increased fruit intake by means of fruit juices had a higher incidence of DM.

Based on mathematical ratios & statistic we conclude that eating vegetables and generally eating less high cholesterol foods reduces the risk of heart disease. New research has shown that women who eat whole fruit instead of drinking fruit juice are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Women who include whole fruit in their diets rather than fruit juice may reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a multi-site study.

The outcomes and conclusions are interesting, but leave many questions. For instance, diabetics are known to have a sweet tooth. Consuming fruit juice could have been a result of a craving for something sweet  that preceded the dietary manifestation. Juices are concentrated and have higher glucose content. The ingestion of leafy greens and whole fruit suggests those nurses probably didn’t have high-fat diets, or have other habits that would increase diabetes risk, like smoking. I’d be curious to know about the other foods that made up the diets of those with and without the diagnosis of diabetes through the study period.

Also, were those consuming juice overweight? Overweight can contribute to developing diabetes.

How do we calculate BMI? YOU GOT IT! MATH!! This is what we need to understand, every little particle of our organism can have a mathematical view, every single thing we do during our daily life has a mathematical interpretation. Sure, we don’t like to view it that way, but it is what it is.
