The Healthiest Fruit to Help Prevent Diabetes

All fruit isn’t created equal when it comes to preventing diabetes.

A recent study from Harvard University tracked the diets of more than 185,000 people over 12 years of age and shows that eating strawberries, oranges, peaches, and plums did little to nothing to prevent type 2 diabetes.

But grapes, apples, grapefruit and blueberries do help prevent the disease.  For example, eating between one and three servings of top ranking blueberries, the person would decrease their risk by 11 percent.

The study also found a surprise with fruit juices as not all juices translate well to a preventative.  Due to how most juices are over processed and the loss of the natural and beneficial fiber, the study found that drinking a single serving of juice per day actually increases your diabetes risk by 21 percent.

A good juicer is a great option.  I know I love mine and the benefits that come from not adding sugars.
