JDiet has been proven time and time again to have a significant impact on overall health. Today, a team of Italian researchers claim that moderate consumption of dairy products, such as cheese or yogurt, can play an important role in preventing type 2 diabetes.
The authors of the study, which was presented at the latest conference of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, reviewed research on the link between different foods of animal origin and the risk of diabetes. .
With all this information, they were able to claim that dairy products, especially low-fat options and yogurts, help reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
“Dairy products are rich in nutrients, vitamins and other bioactive compounds that can favorably influence glucose metabolism – the body’s processing of sugar,” says researcher Annalisa Giosuè, one of the study’s authors, in a statement.
Additionally, the same study also found that red and processed meat can have the opposite effect and increase the risk of diabetes. So to replace it, the authors of the study recommend eating fish and eggs.
Overall, the dietary guidelines, recommended for preventing type 2 diabetes, focus on eating plant-based foods like whole grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes, and olive oil. . It is also recommended to limit the consumption of animal products.
However, this new study goes against that and adds that not all animal protein sources have the same nutritional value. The team therefore says that it may be necessary to update these recommendations, creating more options.
