How Natural Yogurt Could Help in the Fight Against Diabetes

Health officials have warned that type 2 diabetes is a growing problem that is only going to get worse if we don’t curb our overeating and amend our diets, but now new research has found that that a daily dose of yogurt could help to fight off this serious health problem.

The research, conducted by scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health and published this month at BMC Medicine, is a cohort study meaning that it combined data from three studies that were already very large in their own right, involving 41,497 participants from the Health Professionals’ Follow-up Study, 85,884 from the Nurses’ Health Study, and 85,884 from the Nurses’ Health Study II. In these studies, participants were surveyed on their eating habits every two years for a period of up to 30 years.
