Consuming High-Fat Dairy Products Lowers Diabetes Risk

April 2, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Recent studies have shed light on the link between consuming dairy products and a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. New Swedish research confirms that eating high-fat dairy products is particularly associated with a reduced risk. Researchers analyzed data from 27,000 middle-aged and older adults, finding that those who ate the most high-fat dairy products had a 23 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who ate the least. They also found that those who ate a lot of meat were much more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, no matter how much fat was in the meat.
