A recent study shows a link between lowering cheese consumption and a decreased risk of diabetes. Have a look!
If you told me I had to give up cheese forever, I’d probably tell you that wasn’t going to happen. While cheese is high in calories and saturated fat, a recent study shows a link between cheese consumption and decreased diabetes risk. Have a look.
Researchers analyzed eight countries in Europe, which included 340,234 people and found that people who consider themselves cheese eaters have a 12 percent lower risk of Type 2 diabetes than people who don’t eat cheese. The study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and defined cheese-eaters as consuming anywhere from 11 to 56 grams of cheese a day.
This particular study showed a link between cheese consumption and lower diabetes risk, but other previous studies have found the exact opposite. So, researchers aren’t suggesting we all go cheese wild as a way to avoid diabetes, but if you’re already a cheese lover, it may not hurt to keep up with your habits. So long as they also include plenty of fruits and vegetables, of course.
