Type 2 diabetes prevention by consuming one of these fruits.
You can say that fruits are one of natural sweets in the universe. The query is—seeing that they taste freshly sweet and all—are they also dangerous for diabetics? Consumption of fruits and vegetables has undeniably numerous benefits for health, including the roles to keep people fit or cure any disease.
Take some well-known fruits such as blueberries, grapes, apples for example; a new research in England has proven that the three of those fruits are linked to lower risk of type 2 diabetes.
Neither of blueberries, grapes, apples does not contain sweets (which is rhetorically known to be an enemy of diabetics), yes, but the recent study published in British Medical Journal asserts that blueberries can reduce the risk of getting type 2 diabetes up to 26 percent.
In fact, the united research teams from the UK, the US, and Singapore approved this uplifting efficacy as they were done observing the eating patterns of 187.382 Americans, where the 12.198 of them (6,5 percent of the participants) were affirmatively found to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetics.

Blueberries Can Lower The Risk of Type 2 Diabetes Up To 33%
How did the researchers observe the participants’ eating patterns? As a matter of fact, they observed the participants once in every four years. The researchers used foods frequency questionnaires functioned to ask the participants’ fruits-consuming-portions in averages.
Among grapes or raisins, plums, peaches, apricots, cantaloupes, apples or pears, oranges, grapefruits, strawberries, and blueberries as the observed fruits, it was analytically shown that consuming three portions of blueberries, grapes or raisins, and apples or pears every week constantly reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes in the participants—despite the fact that all fruits can do that as well, although they are practically less effective than the three mentioned fruits.
It was later found that the lower-risk-of-type-2-diabetes-effect became less effective when the fruits were consumed as juices. The researchers said that eating whole fruits would give more significant benefits (especially for diabetics) than consuming fruit juice.
Replacing our consumption of fruit juice with apples or pears leads us to decreased risk of type 2 diabetes up to 13 percent; grapes are or raisins up to 19 percent; blueberries up to 33 percent. We can also consume the combination of those whole three altogether, which goes to reduced risk of type 2 diabetes up to 7 percent. In addition, some other whole fruits such as oranges, peaches, plums, and apricots result the same fruitful effects.
Let’s begin a healthier life free from diabetes with whole fruits (particularly blueberries, grapes, and apples).
