Wine and Chocolate - Can Lower Risk of Developing Diabetes

Now this sounds like a delicious study to be a part of.

Eating berries, dark chocolate, red wine and tea could help lower your risk of developing Type–2 Diabetes.

It's the flavonoids in those foods that are good for us.

Researchers looked at the eating habits of two thousand women.

They were asked to give blood samples and complete questionnaires to see how many flavonoids they ate and drank.

Those who got the most, had lower insulin resistance and were able to regulate their blood sugar better.

Study authors say while these findings show parts of some foods we consider unhealthy may be good for us, it doesn't mean we should go out and overeat chocolate or down a bunch of red wine – no matter how fun that might be.

This study comes from the Journal of Nutrition
