The average daily intake of fruits and vegetables as well as the number of participants consuming five or more fruits and vegetables per day was lower among the participants who developed diabetes than among the participants in the study who remained free of this disease.

The investigators determined that these results suggest that fruit and vegetable consumption may decrease the risk for diabetes."

Fruit is an excellent food. It satisfies our natural urges for something sweet. Pre-diabetics and diabetics would benefit from eating more fresh, raw fruits and vegetables and less refined carbohydrates, in any form.

The study was reported in Preventive Medicine.
