Scientist from Tufts and Harvard University are giving much attention to the dairy food in the past few years. They looked for the link between the risk of diabetes and heart diseases and full-fat diary. In a study of 3000 participant, it was found that people who consumed dairy fat had a lesser chance of diabetes. According to a theory, people who don’t eat or have limited consumption of dairy might compensate it by consuming low-fiber carbohydrates that are more refined and can increase the risk of diabetes.
Followed for over several decades, a study on 200,000 people focused on the link between heart diseases and dairy products consumption. The results showed that there was no increment in the rate of heart disease among the people who included dairy fat in their diet plan. However, the risk was even lowered when people replaced dairy fat with whole grains and plant based fats. The chances of risk were lowered by 24% when these dairy products were replaced by the polyunsaturated fats and 28% when they were replaced by the whole grains. The risk hyped by 6% when it was replaced by the saturated fats like red meat.
Third research was the review of nine studies which looked upon another saturated fat, butter and the link of it in heart disease and diabetes. It was found that a small amount of butter in your diet is not causing any harm to your body.
It’s healthier to use olive oil for cooking. You can also have a small amount of butter in your whole-grain cereal or have some cheese with whole grain bread. It’s best to have full fat yogurt in your diet to make it healthier. As yogurt is a diary product, it will reduce the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.
