Fruit does not protect against diabetes juice
13.11.2013

Those who eat a lot of fruit such as blueberries, grapes and apples have a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Fruit juices appear to have an opposite effect. This is now shown by new data from the Nurses’ Health study.

150,000 women and 36,000 men were asked about their eating and drinking habits over many years. The participants who ate apples, blueberries or grapes at least three times a week had a lower risk of diabetes than the participants who only rarely did. The risk of diabetes was reduced by 26% among blueberry eaters. Frequent eating grapes or apples was also associated with a reduced risk. In contrast, if fruit juice was consumed instead of fresh fruit, the risk was slightly increased.

According to the scientists, secondary phytochemicals (anthocyanins) in blueberries, apples and grapes could have a protective effect. The resveratrol in the grape skin could also protect against diabetes. (pm)
