Interesting read, thanks for the heads up!
Point of interest was that gamma tocopherol (a form of vitamin E) was a risk factor for Diabetes.
Might be because that's the form that is associated with vegetable seed oils (Omega 6s) that many people get too much of... relative to Omega 3s?
Good call on the Dandelion Greens as a good low carb source of betacarotenes, Brigit!
Other dark leafy greens... watercress, red leaf lettuce, Kale, spinach, turnip, collard and mustard green are all good sources. Ironically the betacarotene content becomes more bio-available when you lightly steam the last 5 on this list.
Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.

One thing to keep in mind is that lots of red/orange foods are also high in carbs. For people who need to avoid that take a look at the Vitamin A in dandelion greens, many times the amount in most other veggies.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
"Beta carotene, the nutrient that gives red and orange fruits and vegetables their color, might lower a person's risk for type 2 diabetes if they have a certain genetic predisposition to the disease, Stanford University School of Medicine researchers report in the journal Human Genetics."
