Did You Know? Eating Too Much Fruits Causes Diabetes

A Consultant Reproductive Endocrinologist, Prof. Oladapo Ashiru, has cautioned Nigerians against too much consumption of fruits, saying it causes diabetes and other health conditions.

His words; “People are taking smoothies and mix a lot of water melon, pineapples, oranges and then, mix all like that in large quantities.

“They are not good for the pancreas, because they are too much. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended daily amount of fruit is like 200 grammes, which is just very small amount.

“Too much of it exhausts the function of the pancreas and that is what leads to diabetes, because the organ that produces the insulin cannot regenerate,“
