Peaches, plums and nectarines have been shown to fight obesity-related heart disease and diabetes, according to new research.

With funding from the California Plum Board and the California Grape and Tree League, researchers say that the phenolic or plant compounds in stone fruits have anti-obesity, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties and may also reduce the oxidation of bad cholesterol LDL, which is associated with cardiovascular disease.

The findings are to be presented at the American Chemical Society in Philadelphia in August and are the first to show that the bioactive compounds of a fruit can work on different fronts against a disease, researchers claim.
