Fruit juice raises risk of type-2 diabetes
The risk of type-2 diabetes can be cut down by blueberries, according to a new research.
The study, published in the British Medical Journal, found that blueberries were beneficial in cutting down the risk of type-2 diabetes by 26 per cent with a 2 per cent decrease for any whole fruit.
It was further seen that fruit juice consumption led to an increase in the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.
Data from the Nurses' Health Study, Nurses' Health Study II and Health Professionals Follow-up Study were taken into consideration to identify that which fruits could prove beneficial.
Every two years, questionnaires were given to the participants about various practices on lifestyle and chronic diseases.
It was also seen that if fruit juices were replaced with whole fruits, there was a lot of benefit derived by the replacement. There was an 18 per cent reduction in the risk of type-2 diabetes if fruit juices were replaced with prunes.
But, it was found that not all fruits had the same effect as grapes, apples, bananas, grapefruit and blueberries had.
The authors suggests, "The relatively high glycaemic load of fruit juice along with reduced levels of beneficial nutrients through juicing processes may explain why juice increases the risk of type 2 diabetes."
