Yogurt and Diabetes Risk
A new study suggests that consuming low-fat yogurt may help reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes. The study, which involved over 4,200 people, found that those who ate about 4.5 four-ounce servings of low-fat yogurt per week had a 28% lower risk than those who didn't eat any. While the findings didn't prove a cause-and-effect relationship, experts say it may be worth replacing less healthy snacks with low-fat yogurt. Low-fat fermented dairy products contain beneficial nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and probiotic bacteria.
