Are you eating enough fruit each day? If you are, you have a reduced risk of developing diabetes.
New research proves that eating enough fresh fruits each day will help you curb that sweet tooth,and provide an array of benefits, including the reduced risk of diabetes. Twelve percent is a big number; don’t miss out.
- A bowl of fresh fruits a day may lower your risk of diabetes by 12%.
- Fresh fruit can also lower the risk of developing diabetes-related complications affecting large blood vessels.
- People with diabetes who consume lots of fruit have a decreased mortality risk of 1.9%.
“Although the health benefits of diets including fresh fruit and vegetables are well established, the relatively high sugar content of fruit has led to uncertainty about associated risks of diabetes and of vascular complications of the disease.”
