Are you worried about diabetes?

Are you worried about diabetes? Eat more fresh fruit. That’s the conclusion of a new study analysing health data from nearly half a million Chinese people. The research indicates that those individuals who ate plenty of fresh fruit were at a reduced risk of developing the disease, while for others who already suffered from it, high fresh fruit consumption resulted in fewer of the complications usually associated with diabetes. These findings contradict suggestions that fresh fruit may not be ideal for diabetes patients because of its elevated sugar content.
