Pumpkins Great For Diabetic Health

There are certain foods (Pumpkins for Diabetes) that can be associated with seasons. With the fall season here and the holidays will be soon arriving, the fruit pumpkin comes to mind. Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Seeds from related plants have been found in Mexico dating back to 7000 to 5500 B.C. References to pumpkins date back many centuries. The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word for “large melon” which is “pepon.” “Pepon” was changed by the French into “pompon.” The English changed “pompon” to “Pumpion.” American colonists changed “pumpion” into “pumpkin.” Native Americans dried strips of pumpkin and wove them into mats.
