Cheers! Red wine cuts diabetes risk in women

Cheers! Red wine cuts diabetes risk in women”

A diet rich in food such as prunes, blueberries and strawberries, as well as moderate consumption of tea and red wine, has been linked to a significantly lower risk of diabetes.

The food groups that contributed most to the total antioxidant capacity were fruits and vegetables and hot drinks such as tea, chicory and hot chocolate.

The study found women who consumed the most antioxidants reduced their risk of getting diabetes by 27% compared to those who didn't consume that much, the Daily Mail reported. They were given a food questionnaire to work out an antioxidant ‘score'.

Antioxidants help prevent or stop cell damage, and include vitamins C and E, lycophenes and flavonoids.

The scientists believe this could be achieved by eating a wide variety of antioxidant-rich foods.

The researchers excluded antioxidant-packed coffee from the study, because it has already been shown to reduce type 2 diabetes risk. The team also took into account factors that affect the risk of diabetes such as smoking, education level, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, family history of diabetes and BMI.

For their study, researchers used data from the E3N cohort comprising French women recruited from 1990, aged between 40 and 65 years. Antioxidants are compounds or substances that naturally occur in certain fruits and vegetables.

There have also been studies looking into particular nutrients, but this is the first to explore the effect of overall antioxidant intake.
