Eating more whole fruits like blueberries, grapes and apples, may help prevent Type 2 diabetes.
A large new study looked at how the consumption of 10 different fruits as well as fruit juices affected a person's risk of diabetes.
Researchers found three servings a week of blueberries, grapes or raisins, or apples and pears significantly reduced diabetes risk while higher consumption of fruit juice was linked to a higher risk. But replacing just three weekly servings of fruit juice with whole fruits reduced the risk of Type 2 diabetes by seven-percent.
