Full-fat diet protects against diabetes

Full-fat diet protects against diabetes image

The health benefits of eating full-fat dairy food have been underlined yet again with news that the diet also prevents type 2 diabetes, often a precursor of heart disease.

A major study last year showed that the diet reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease, overturning the 'clogged arteries' theory that has warned for nearly 40 years that full-fat foods were a cause.

The diet is doing the same for type 2 diabetes. A new study has discovered that people consuming full-fat cheese and milk have a 21 per cent lower risk of developing diabetes compared to those following the low-fat diet.

The research involved 1,623 American Indians who traditionally eat a low-fat diet. Researchers from the University of Washington say their findings are significant for anyone following a low-fat diet.

The discovery echoes the conclusion of a major study last year that people who ate two or more servings of full-fat foods every day had a 22 per cent lower risk of heart disease, a 34 per cent reduced risk of stroke, and were 23 per cent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease.
