However, eating whole fruits, the researchers claimed, actually lowered diabetes risks . The findings were published in the journal Diabetes Care . Natural sugars in fruit juce could potentially be the cause behind the damage.

The study was conducted by experts at the Tulane University in New Orleans, and the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. The study researched over 71,000 nurses over a three year period.
