Eating more blueberries, apples and pears may be linked to lower risk of diabetes, according to a new U.S. study.
These fruits are loaded with flavonoids, a natural compound present in certain fruits, vegetables and grains, which some research has tentatively tied to heath benefits such as a lower risk of heart disease or cancer.
"People who ate a higher amount of blueberries or apples, they tended to have a low risk of type 2 diabetes," said An Pan, a research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health who worked on the study.

High end vitamin C supplements have bioflavonoids added. Check the label.
Isn’t cinnamon supposed to be good too? Think I’ll go have some applesauce with cinnamon.
Cinnamon helps balance sugars as well
Stay away from Cholesterol lowering drugs, they cause Type 2 diabetes.
i dunno.. been type two since I was 29.. that happend because I gained 25 lbs with first gestation. both mom and grandma were type 2. I am stilll holding normal weight for my age...still remaing type 2 according to my readings...It will be what ever the study says...I am actucally at the weight that I should be for a female 55. I take in approx 1500 calories per day. BTW, I hate sugar and anything related.
This makes the context clear. This was more a survey study over time rather than a clinical study, which is why they only claim an "association".
Btw, Wyman's sells frozen blueberries that are delicious. I add a 1/2 cup to my cereal each morning.
I have reversed my type 2 diabetes...took about a month to accomplish. I eat a Vegan diet along with aerobic exercise. Type 2 Diabetes...like hypertension are diet and lifestyle problems primarily that can be reversed or controlled better without drugs.
