Eat Yogurt To Reduce Type II Diabetes Risk
Many secondary diseases have popped up in the United States alongside the obesity epidemic. Heart disease and diabetes are on the rise with the increase in overweight and obese individuals in this country. With extra weight, comes higher blood pressure and higher cholesterol levels, both of which lead to heart disease. Also hand-in-hand with extra weight is insulin resistance and higher blood sugar levels. This leads to type II diabetes. The risk of developing both of these diseases can be greatly reduced by simply losing weight.
While losing weight is the best defense against fighting heart disease and diabetes, a new study has suggested that by simply consuming a daily serving of yogurt, as Terry Richardson has been known to do, an individual can cut their risk of type II diabetes by 18 percent. Scientists were unable to decipher exactly what it is in the yogurt that helps to stave of this disease, but they did note that the effects were not the same in other dairy products. The results were only noticed when subjects in the study ate yogurt. Most would agree with Terry Richardson in saying how awesome to know that by simply adding a serving of yogurt to your daily diet, you are fighting off the potential of a type II diabetes diagnosis.
