Many sugar friends and healthy people will avoid eating too much cheese rich in saturated fat. However, according to the British “Daily Mail” recently reported, the United States Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a new study jointly conducted by British and Dutch scientists found that eating cheese often helps to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
For a long time, people have long believed that fatty foods increase various health risks, but the health risks of dairy products such as milk, butter, cheese and yogurt have been uncertain. The latest research done by British and Dutch researchers involved 16,800 healthy adults and 12,400 patients with type 2 diabetes in eight European countries. This large-scale study found that eating at least 55 grams of cheese a day (about two tablets) can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes associated with obesity by about 12%. However, in addition to yogurt, other dairy products do not have the efficacy of cheese to reduce diabetes.
Scientists have pointed out that the reason why cheese can reduce type 2 diabetes may be because some of the reactions in the fermentation process can prevent type 2 diabetes and heart disease. One theory is that probiotics in cheese lower cholesterol and produce certain vitamins that prevent diabetes. In addition, cheese, milk and yogurt are also rich in vitamin D, calcium and magnesium, which help prevent diabetes.
Dr. Ian Flem of the British Diabetes Association warned that sugar lovers should closely monitor blood sugar levels when eating cheese, take insulin medication if necessary, maintain a healthy balanced diet, eat more fruits and vegetables, and reduce salt and fat intake.
