A new international study, led by researchers from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, confirms evidence that dairy fats may decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.
For the study, a team of the researchers analyzed the data received from 16 prospective cohorts that included 63,682 participants from 12 countries. Having analyzed the data, the researchers discovered that people who consumed more dairy products had the lower risk of type 2 diabetes.
The lead researcher Dr. Fumiaki Iamamura says: “We hope that our findings and existing evidence about dairy fat will help inform future dietary recommendations for the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases.”
According to a new research, full-fat dairy products did not raise the possibility of death from any form of heart disease. The research was carried out by an international team of scientists from Reading University in the UK and Copenhagen University in Denmark.
The team analyzed twenty-nine studies and discovered that dairy products, including high-fat ones, do not increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Ian Givens, a professor of nutrition at Reading University, explains: “There’s quite a widespread but mistaken belief among the public that dairy foods, in general, can be bad for you, but that’s a misconception. While it is a wide belief, our research shows that that’s wrong.”
Fat (and full-fat dairy in particular) doesn’t make you fat. In fact, according to a number of studies it can even make you leaner. For example, a review published in the European Journal of Nutrition in 2013 found that people who eat full-fat dairy tend to be leaner than those who chose low-fat versions. And this is not the only study proving that full-fat products are good for your health and weight.
Here are five major benefits of eating full-fat milk, yogurt, cheese and ice-cream:
Easier weight loss.
A lower risk of diabetes.
A healthier heart.
A calmer digestive tract.
Lower sugar intake.
