Munching on blueberries could cut your risk of developing diabetes

Blueberry

Swapping a glass of fruit juice for a handful of blueberries could be enough to lower your risk of developing Type-2 diabetes. According to a new study published in the British Medical Journal, eating blueberries regularly could slash a person’s chances of developing the disease by 26% (and replacing juice with whole fruit — especially those berries — reduces the risk by 33%).

Researchers studied the diets of 187,000 people in the United States for more than four years, frequently asking them about their consumption of fruit and fruit juices; although participants who ate any type of fruit more than three times per week were less likely to develop diabetes, blueberries, grapes, raisins, apples and pears were “particularly effective” at preventing type-2 diabetes.

You can also substitute blue berry with black berry; all “berry” fruits are actually rich of antioxidant.
