London: Two slices of cheese a day can keep diabetes at bay! A new research has claimed that cheese can prevent diabetes, an illness often triggered by being overweight, even as the current health guidelines advise cutting back on dairy products. British and Dutch researchers found that eating just two slices of cheese a day cuts the risk of type 2 diabetes by 12 per cent, the `Daily Mail` reported. Diabetes can cause heart attacks, strokes, blindness and nerve problems, without yet having been diagnosed. The researchers looked at the diets of 16,800 healthy adults and 12,400 patients with type 2 diabetes from eight European countries, including the UK. The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that those who ate at least 55 grams of cheese a day -around two slices were 12 per cent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The risk fell by the same amount for those who ate 55 grams of yoghurt a day.
