According to recent research by Tufts University in Bosto, people who drink plenty of milk could be warding off diabetes . Their findings indicate that those individuals who drink between three and five servings of milk and/or milk-related products, could be as much as 15 per cent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, when compared to those who have one and a half or less.
Milk is packed with beneficial ingredients. The researchers indicate that calcium and vitamin D are the major ingredients that aid the body in producing insulin. The study is based on a statistical method called meta-analysis, and researchers investigated diabetes, milk, calcium and vitamin D.
The authors of the study reportedly commented: “The results of future studies will define the clinical role of vitamin D and calcium as potential interventions for prevention and management of type 2 [diabetes], which will have significant public health implications because vitamin D and calcium insufficiency is common in U.S. adults, and both interventions can be implemented easily and inexpensively in clinical practice.”
