Asparagus could be a powerful new culinary weapon in the fight against diabetes.

Scientists have found regular intake of the increasingly popular vegetable keeps blood sugar levels under control and boosts the body’s production of insulin, the hormone that helps it to absorb glucose.

UK consumption of asparagus has soared in recent years to record levels of around 8,000 tonnes a year.

As well as its delicate flavour, it now appears it could have a vital role to play in combating Britain’s looming diabetes crisis.

If some smart drug folks are out there, they'll find out what the chemical compound in asparagus is, develop a new medicine, and sell it for $10/pill - paid for by Medicare, Medicaid and ObamaKare.

I really don't like asparagus.....or many cooked veggies. Raw carrots are fine. Green beans are fine...... I"ll have my spinach as spinach leaves in my salad....
