|Eating yogurt can reduce diabetes risk: Study (Fotolia) |
Eating low-fat fermented dairy products, including yogurt and some cheeses, can reduce a person's risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 24%, a new British study has found.
The researchers found milk and cheese intake did not raise the risk, but those with the highest consumption of products like yogurt and low-fat cottage cheese were 24% less likely to develop diabetes.
The study has been published in the European Association for the Study of Diabetes journal Diabetologia.
