Blueberries, Apples and Grapes Cut Type-2 Diabetes Risk

by Rachel Baker on August 30, 2013

A new study suggests that Blueberries and Apples help to cut the risk of Type-2 Diabetes. However, fruit juice did not yield the same results.

Eating more fruit, particularly blueberries, apples and grapes, is linked to a reduced risk of developing type-2 diabetes, suggests a study in the British Medical Journal.

Blueberries cut the risk by 26% compared with 2% for three servings of any whole fruit – but fruit juice did not appear to have the same effect.

For example, replacing fruit juice with blueberries could reduce the risk of contracting type-2 diabetes by 33%, with grapes and raisins by 19%, apples and pears by 13% – and with any combination of whole fruit by 7%.

Replacing fruit juice with oranges, peaches, plums and apricots had a similar effect.
