In a new study, Scientists have found that drinking fruit juice in the breakfast is not healthy and can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The researchers further claimed that as fruit juice contains high sugar and lacks fibre, therefore, it multiplies the risk.
The scientists said,
“Intake of fruit juices was positively associated with the incidence of type 2 diabetes. The rapid delivery of a large sugar load, without many other components that are a part of whole fruits, may be an important mechanism by which fruit juices could contribute to the development of diabetes.”
On the other hand, eating leafy green vegetables and fruits reduce the risk of developing this disease. Both the things are rich in micronutrients and fibre, moreover, have a low energy density.
All the fibre has been removed from the fruit juice when they are being manufactured, so it’s better to drink only one small glass of fruit juice a day.
The scientists further add:
“We know that too much of our sugar intake is coming from juices and smoothies, so it makes sense to cut down. The good news is that we are not eating enough fruit, so this is something you can eat more of.”
Symptoms which occurs when we are consuming too much sugar
- Feeling very tired.
- Blurred vision.
- Unexplained weight loss.
- Unquenchable thirst.
