Eating Fresh Fruit Every Day May Cut the Risk of Diabetes by 12%
Some may think that eating too much fruit is not very good for your health because it contains too much sugar. However, a new research, led by Oxford University, discovered that fresh fruit does not increase blood sugar. The scientists think that this is due to glucose and fructose are metabolized differently to the refined sugars found in processed foods.
For the study, the researchers monitored around 500,000 people in China and found that those who were diabetes-free at the beginning of the 7-year experiment had 12% lower risk of developing diabetes if they consumed fruit every day.
Study authors and the lead author Dr. Huaidong Du at Oxford say: “These findings suggest that a higher intake of fresh fruit is potentially beneficial for primary and secondary prevention of diabetes.”
