Gene mutations in gut linked to reduced type 2 diabetes risk and more... reports that gene mutations that result in lower glucose absorption from the gut provide protection against obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart failure and mortality.

Interestingly the article admits a link between high carbohydrate diets and putting on weight.  Absorption of less glucose results in less total calories absorbed, but also lower insulin response to meals and hence less fat storage.

In short, absorbing less glucose from the gut may result in lower risks of diseases.

Putting less glucose in your gut will certainly result in less absorption of glucose.  This should have the same effect of reducing obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and mortality.

Hmmm...what foods are the rich sources of glucose? 

Oh yeah, its the plants!
