Dairy Fat Seems To Protect Against Onset Of Type 2 Diabetes

September 15, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Swedish researchers report that people who eat a lot of high-fat dairy products are much less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who eat very little. The study looked at dietary and other health data collected from nearly 27,000 men and women aged 45-74 years, with 14 years of follow-up. High intake of high-fat dairy products, including cream and high-fat fermented milk, was associated with a 23 percent lower incidence of type 2 diabetes for the highest consuming 20 percent of participants – eight portions of dairy food a day – compared with the lowest consuming 20 percent, who ate one portion a day. The researchers did not find the same association with low-fat dairy products or animal fats in general.
