Eating more fruit, particularly blueberries, apples and grapes, is linked to reduced risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, suggests a study in the British Medical Journal.

Blueberries cut the risk by 26 percent compared with 2 percent for three servings of any other whole fruit .

The fruits used in the study were grapes or raisins, peaches, plums or apricots, prunes, bananas, cantaloupe, apples or pears, oranges, grapefruit, strawberries and blueberries.

While all fruit was shown to reduce the risk the data showed that three servings per week of blueberries, grapes and raisins, and apples and pears significantly reduced the risk of Type-2 diabetes.
