Fruits And Vegetable Lowers the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Fruits And Vegetable Lowers the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Eating a range of fruits and vegetable or varying fruits and vegetable in your diets might decrease the risk of Type 2 diabetes according to the new study. Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes which is a disease that is associated with old age and obesity. According to the findings in the journal, eating of fruits and vegetable will not totally put the type 2 diabetes to an end but it will significantly reduce its risk. The researchers say the findings should give people more incentive to eat the way our mothers always told us.

In type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use glucose for energy. When you eat food, the body breaks down all of the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in the body. Insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can lead to diabetes complications.

Fruits And Vegetable Lowers the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

In the study, over 3,700 adults were used and it was discovered that those who eat varieties of fruits and vegetable in a week had a lower risk of developing the type over 11 years, as against those who eat lesser amount of fruit and vegetable. It was also observed that diabetes risk also was lower among people who ate a wider variety of fruits and vegetables, regardless of the actual quantity they ate

This finding on variety of intake of fruits and vegetable is exciting because it demonstrates that independent of the quantity consumed, we have the potential to gain additional and important benefits from choosing a mixture of different fruits and vegetables as part of a balanced diet. It is important to eat fruit since, in another study, it was revealed that some personal care products may increase the risk of diabetes. So, if you have not been taken fruits and vegetable, you should learn something from this finding as it will help to reduce the type 2 diabetes, a common type of diabetes that is prominent in the old age.
