A Little Cultured Can Cow Decreases Diabetes — Dave’s Diary
If you are lactose intolerant, this isn’t for you! Recent research from Europe suggests that eating yogurt, cottage cheese, or other cultured dairy products may help protect you from type 2 diabetes.
We are hearing more and more about type 2 so this is important news. People in the study who ate 8 ounces a day of cultured dairy had a 12 percent lower risk of developing the condition than those who ate none.
The probiotics in these foods may help your body produce a form of vitamin K that has been linked with decreased diabetes risk. That’s the cheese, not the pizza that often goes with it!
