Consuming full-fat milk lowers the risk of diabetes, a new study suggests.
Visiting a supermarket? Think about buying full-fat milk and dairy products for your health. These reduce the risk of diabetes by an average of 46 per cent, when contrasted with low-fat options, a study published in Circulation journal showed.
Dr Dariush Mozaffarian and a team of researchers looked into data of 3,333 adults from the Nurses’ Health Study of Health Professionals Follow-up Study. They analysed blood data that was collected over 15 years.
