Intake of fruit juice and incidence of type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Regular consumers of sugar-sweetened fruit juice may have a high tendency to develop type 2 diabetes.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between fruit juice intake and type 2 diabetes risk by meta-analysis. Four studies that examined 191,686 subjects and 12,375 cases of type 2 diabetes were included in this meta-analysis.

The team of researchers found out that regular consumption of sugar-sweetened fruit juice increased the odds of developing type 2 diabetes. In contrast, generous intake of 100% natural fruit juice was not associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes in this study. The results of this study suggest that regular drinking of sugar-sweetened fruit juice may contribute positively to the development of type 2 diabetes.
