Best fruits for lowering the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

We all know that fruit is healthy, but there is evidence that not all fruit will provide the same benefits. The reviewed research compared how different fruits may reduce the risk for Type 2 Diabetes (Muraki I,,2013).

This was a large study that included a total of 151,209 women and 36,173 men for 3,464,641 person years of follow up.

The findings showed that specific whole fruits, particularly blueberries, grapes and apples are significantly associated with a lower risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

But don't forget: it is still true that consuming large amounts fruit juice is associated with a higher risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

This is yet another study indicating that too much sugar, even if it comes in the form of fruit juice, is not a good thing.
