Research shows value of fresh fruit and vegetables in prevention of type-2 diabetes

Research has been published which underlines the valuable role fresh fruit and vegetables can play in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes. Franziska Jannasch’s team analysed three different patterns which had beneficial impacts. The Mediterranean type, DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension) and AHEI (Alternative Healthy Eating Index) diets were all associated with 13% to 20% reductions in diabetes. Intriguingly, both low and high fat (Mediterranean type diet) diets seem to decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.
