Worried about the risk of developing diabetes? You might want to eat more yogurt. That's the takeaway from new research out of the University of Cambridge, which found that a significantly lower percentage of study subjects who ate yogurt at least four times a week developed diabetes than those who did not.
Yogurt contains calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and fatty acids, all of which could bring us health benefits, according to the lead researcher Dr. Nita Forouhi. The fermentation process that turns milk into yogurt also produces probiotic bacteria and "specific types of vitamin K," that are known to be beneficial.
