A new study has found that people who eat a healthy diet including whole fruits may be less likely to develop diabetes.

The study by Institute for Nutrition Research in Perth, Australia says people who consume two servings of fruit per day have 36 percent lower chances of developing type 2 diabetes than those who consume less than half a serving.

The study further elaborates that not the same results were found in case of fruit juice thus concluding that consumption of whole fruit is more beneficial than juice.

Diabetes is a disease where people have too much sugar in their bloodstream, and it is a huge public health burden. Approximately 463 million adults worldwide were living with diabetes in 2019, and by 2045 this number is expected to rise to 700 million.
