Cheese eaters may have more than refined palates — they may also carry a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to a new study.

Research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that people who reported being cheese eaters have a 12 percent lower risk of the disease than people who don't eat cheese.

Plus, people who ate more cheese, fermented milk and yogurt in the study were also more likely to have a decreased diabetes risk than people who ate less of these foods, noted the researchers, who came from Oxford University and Imperial College London.

But overall, dairy consumption was not linked with an increased or decreased risk of diabetes, the researchers found.

And don't forget to cut the cheese before you eat it !
I live in cheese country (Wisconsin) so it's pretty much a staple around here.

Ha..that is very interesting. I love cheese, I eat it everyday almost, and I am a very brittle diabetic, ha,ha,ha. Of course, 12% is 12%. Almost everyone in my whole family is diabetic, it's in my genetics very strongly. That is a very interesting piece of information you shared, though..thank you! ANNE

I love cheese but this past year was taken off all dairy and put on soy products only. I now have to use soy or veggie cheese.
