New diet to beat diabetes - fresh fruit cuts risk by a quarter

Date posted: 10 October 2013

Results from three longitudinal studies have found that portion-controlled consumption of fresh whole fruits three times per week can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by a quarter.

The study, published in the British Medical Journal, found that blueberries provide the most effective protection, providing a 26% risk reduction, followed by grapes or raisins, prunes, then apples or pears.
