As global rates of Type 2 diabetes rise, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has chosen to shine the spotlight on the disease this World Health Day.
Some 422 millions people are currently living with diabetes, according to WHO.
While Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition which is often inherited, Type 2 is the most common form and is can be caused by factors including obesity and age, which stop the pancreas from producing enough insulin to process sugar.
Eating the correct foods, therefore, can help a person to avoid developing Type 2 diabetes. To mark World Health Day, here are some of the world's healthiest diets, which help to stave off chronic diseases like diabetes.
