(Newser) – In news Chuck Schumer would likely applaud, researchers find that a yogurt a day might actually keep the doctor away. A British study published in Diabetologia found a significant decrease in type 2 diabetes risk in individuals who eat low-fat fermented dairy products: Those who ate low-fat yogurt had about a 28% reduced risk of developing diabetes; and, for those who ate low-fat fermented dairy products in general, such as cottage cheese, that risk was reduced by about 24%. HealthDay reports the observed correlations were seen among individuals who ate about four or five 4-ounce servings of fermented dairy products a week.
