Florida, June 27, 2014: A recent study conducted by the British Medical Journal has discovered that some foods, such as apples and blueberries, are conductive to the health of people diagnosed with type 2 disease. The results of the study fly in the face of those, who claim that the sugar content in these natural foods is detrimental to people, and therefore foods containing natural sugars should be avoided.

Several fruits were considered for the recent study, including blueberries, cantaloupes, apples, and grapes. Researchers found that blueberries provide the greatest advantage. These blue fruits reduced the chances of contracting diabetes by 26 percent. In comparison, cantaloupes provided 10 percent additional protection. Strawberries and oranges were effective too, albeit by only eight percent.

Fruits and vegetables are rich sources of antioxidants. These are compounds which protect the body from the harmful effects of oxidation reactions. Oxidation reactions are a part of essential body processes, such as metabolism and digestion. Cells die when they are exposed to these chemical processes. Antioxidants are substances that safeguard cells, thus slow down aging. There are many other benefits of antioxidants.

This research supports the results of another study carried out by the Harvard School of Public Health. It organised a meta-study on more than 187,000 people. The study combined results from three smaller studies, namely the Nurses’ Health Study II, the Nurses’ Health Study, and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. These three big studies used data collected through scientifically designed questionnaires.
