Researchers from Lund University Diabetes Centre in Sweden clarified the risk for Type 2 diabetes associated with meat, fish, and dairy.
Scientists studied 26,930 individuals’ dietary data for 14 years; 2,860 cases of diabetes developed.
A large intake of high-fat dairy products was associated with a 23 percent lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, compared to those who consumed one or fewer portions per day.
The authors also found that a large intake of low-fat dairy was associated with a significantly higher risk of Type 2 diabetes than high-fat dairy.
For more than 50 years, we have been told to eat a low-fat diet to lower the risk of heart disease.
Well, they told us wrong.
We followed that advice and lowered our fat intake, and the results could not be worse: We have an epidemic of Type 2 diabetes caused by low-fat dietary recommendations.
Patients need to be educated about which food sources are healthy to eat.
My research has shown that low-fat diets are detrimental in many ways. They not only promote obesity and diabetes, they also cause multiple nutrient imbalances.
The consequences of a low-fat diet can include higher rates of immune dysfunction, cancer, and chronic illness.
We were designed to utilize dietary fat for maintaining cell membranes and providing crucial nutrients to optimize the immune system.
I can make it simple for you: Avoid all low-fat food sources.
