If non-fat milk is in your weekly grocery rotation, you may want to pause before heading to the store. According to a new study from Tufts University, eating full fat dairy might reduce the risk of developing diabetes. The results are published in the journal Circulation.
To determine the correlation between dairy fat and diabetes, the researchers examined blood samples from 3,333 adults, ages 30 to 75, from two large U.S. prospective studies—the Nurses’ Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-Up Study. All participants were free of prevalent diabetes at the beginning of the 15-year study period.
