Fruit and vegetable intake and type 2 diabetes: EPIC-InterAct prospective study and meta-analysis.

Regular ingestion of diets rich in fruits and vegetables, especially root and green leafy vegetables, may significantly cut down type 2 diabetes risk.

​The objective of this study was to determine the correlation between fruit and vegetable intake and type 2 diabetes risk. Researchers systematically reviewed data extracted from 5 studies that tracked the diets of 340,234 subjects and examined 12,403 cases of type 2 diabetes. They observed that habitual consumption of fruits and vegetables, especially green leafy and root vegetables, diminished the likelihood of developing diabetes mellitus. The findings of this study lend further support to the hypothesis that increase in the rate of consumption of fruits and vegetables may decrease the incidence of type 2 diabetes in the general population.
