For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data taken from 147,812 people who live in Asia, North and South America, Africa, and Europe. The participants were 35 to 70 years old. To gather the necessary information, the questionnaires were used.

Study co-author Andrew Mente, Ph.D., a principal investigator at the Population Health Research Institute, in Hamilton, Canada, says: “Higher intake of dairy foods, such as milk, yogurt, and cheese, especially whole-fat dairy rather than low-fat dairy, is associated with a lower prevalence of metabolic syndrome and with a lower risk of developing hypertension and diabetes.”
