A new study has determined that people with higher fat levels in their blood coming from dairy, were 40 percent less likely to develop diabetes. The results of the participants of the Nurses’ Health and Health Professionals Follow-Up Study were published in the journal Circulation.
The theory is that dairy fats may be able to grant a significant improvement in how the body reacts to insulin, as diabetes is characterized by a lack of sensitivity to insulin.
There was another related study which analyzed how dairy consumption may render being overweight more or less probable. A series of question,s with a particular emphasis on dairy foods, were issued to 8,000 participants in which they stated their food habits. The study carried on for 10 years, and the results displayed that those who ate a higher percentage of high-fat dairy foods were less likely to be obese.
So, dairy or nondairy?
We are often able to choose whether we eat dairy or nondairy products. Food specialists often say that the ideal behavior is to reduce the amount of fat in our diets altogether, especially fat coming from animals. Although the studies seem to be promising, there is still evidence of dairy products doing harm to the body under certain circumstances.
The key is to develop well-balanced eating habits and to take into account that high-fat products will always have more calories than nondairy products. But still, some argue that the increased amount of fat and flavor leads to a more satisfactory meal, which will reduce the chance of eating additional food. Dairy, just like any other food, can be consumed in the right amounts. All it takes is to pay attention to what you eat and determine what foods are bound to be harmful and which are not.
Dairy is still considered a fantastic recovery supplement. It combines lactose and protein, two essential components in the muscular restorative process. As to reducing the risk of diabetes, doctors always recommend over whether eating dairy or not, to have a healthy diet and to follow a regular exercise routine in order to maintain an ideal body weight and bodily functions.
