Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen includes 3 servings of beans. Just a half-cup of roasted chickpeas and you can check one serving off of your list.

  2. Beans are associated with decreased type 2 diabetes.
  3. Eating beans means more nutrients and improved body weight control.
  4. Adding beans can even lead to weight loss, without intentional calorie restriction.
  5. Beans can help reduce cholesterol and control blood pressure.
