Study Finds That Yogurt Consumption Significantly Cuts Risk Of Adult Diabetes

February 5, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
British researchers who analyzed dietary data collected from more than 25,000 men and women living in Norfolk, U.K., over 11 years, found that those who ate more low-fat fermented dairy products, including cottage cheese and yogurt, reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes by 24 percent. When the researchers focused on yogurt alone, which comprises 85 percent of fermented dairy products, they found a 28 percent reduced risk of diabetes.
