Full-fat milk 'may drastically reduce risk of diabetes'

Full-fat milk 'may drastically reduce risk of diabetes'

When Mozaffarian and his team adjusted their calculations to include weight gain and loss, they found that the connection between a lower-risk of diabetes and eating full-fat dairy products still held.

The second study analyzed over 18,000 middle-aged women who participated in the Women's Health Study.

At the end of the study duration, the researchers noted that those women who consumed high-fat dairy had at least 8% lower chances of becoming obese over time than those women who ate less.

Yet, full-fat dairy products contain more calories than lower fat dairy products and many people want to avoid putting on the extra pounds - one of many risk factors for diabetes. "A lot of times, we want more for our money but you have to real careful, and look at how much you're taking in all fats, cholesterol, all of that", she explains. There was no link found in weight loss/gain with low-fat dairy intake.

The study women were of normal weight, free of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes at the start of the study and filled in questionnaires asking them about their food habits.

Schools provide low-fat milk for lunches, the latest dietary guideline emitted by the health authorities recommend people to swap whole-fat with low-fat and even no-fat dairies.

Two new studies have determined that full-fat dairy foods, like whole milk, is associated with a reduced risk for diabetes and obesity.

If there is a sillier argument about food on the Internet than what kind of milk you should drink, or whether you should drink milk at all, it's hard to find.

According to a report in CBSNEWS by Mary Brophy Marcus, "Can we go back to putting whole milk in our coffee and slurping down real ice cream?" However, culinary advice not withstanding, nutrition experts have long recommended low-fat dairy products to improve health and reduce obesity.

Mozaffarian, however, affirmed the results are preliminary and could not be considered to make official recommendations.

Nevertheless, critics of the study think that changing the national guidelines on dietary fat consumption may be premature. They observed that those with the highest levels of dairy fat in their blood had a 46 percent lower risk of developing diabetes over the study span, compared to those who had the lowest levels of dairy fats in their blood, Medical Daily reported. "Patients eating high-fat dairy may be on a high-protein, high-fat diet (Atkins) and perhaps that is why they are not gaining".
