    Researchers from the University of East Anglia and King’s College London say that flavonoids and other components found in berries, tea, and chocolate could offer protection from Type 2 diabetes.

    According to research from the University of East Anglia and King’s College London,  eating high amounts of particular flavonoids found in berries, tea, and chocolate could offer protection from type 2 diabetes.  How is that?  These food groups lower inflammation that is often associated with diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.  The study found that those participants who consumed a lot of  anthocyanins, flavonoids found in these foods, and flavones had lower insulin resistance.  High insulin resistance is associated with type 2 diabetes.  So go ahead and binge on those berries!
