'Apples may protect us from diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity (meaning that your body doesn’t need to produce as much insulin) and helping with the maintenance of a healthy body weight.'
This advice comes from Dr Nicola Bondonno, a researcher at Edith Cowan University in Australia. She has a PhD in Nutrition and has spent four years researching the health benefits of apples.
Read more about Nicola's findings in 'The Health Benefits of Apples', a new 'Journal of Apples' article that she has written especially for Apples & People.
