Which dairy products should you avoid?
- by admin
Dairy products such as cheese, yoghurt and yogurt are popular in the US, but are they safe to eat?
What about soy, butter and almond milk?
This article looks at the health risks associated with each type of dairy product.
It also looks at whether there is an association between the consumption of dairy products and the development of diabetes.
Cheese and yoghurts A few months ago, researchers at the University of California, Davis published a paper in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism which concluded that consumption of processed cheese is associated with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The research looked at a large number of samples and identified two types of cheese that had the highest risk of the development.
The first was the so-called “processed cheese”, which was created in the early 20th century from whey, lactose and whey protein concentrate.
The researchers were surprised to find that people who consumed processed cheese had an elevated risk of diabetes, especially in those with Type 2 diabetes who also consumed processed dairy products.
The study found that cheese consumption was associated with a 1.4% increase in the risk of Type 2 Diabetes in people with Type 1 diabetes.
In addition, the study found a significant association between processed cheese consumption and a higher risk of type 2 Diabetes.
Researchers also found a positive association between high levels of processed milk consumption and increased risk.
According to the American Diabetes Association, processed milk contains high levels to lactose, which is an enzyme which breaks down the sugars in milk.
When you consume high amounts of processed dairy, the body converts the sugars into energy.
However, researchers found that the higher the amount of milk consumed, the more likely it was that the body would convert the lactose into energy by the enzyme lactase.
It was suggested that high levels or exposure to lactase could lead to a condition called non-specific type 2 diabetes, where the body does not make the enzymes needed to break down lactose.
Studies have also shown that high consumption of cheese can increase the risk for Type 2 Diabetes.
One study, which looked at the consumption patterns of 779 adults aged 25 to 50, found that people with higher cheese consumption had higher rates of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics.
Another study, also from the University at Albany, examined the consumption habits of a sample of older adults, and found that those with the highest cheese consumption, those who ate a lot of processed foods and who also drank more alcohol, had a higher likelihood of having Type 2, and a lower likelihood of Type 3.
More recently, a study in the British Medical Journal found that a person’s dairy intake was associated more strongly with Type 3 diabetes, even after controlling for lifestyle factors, including income, alcohol consumption and body mass index.
What can you do to reduce your risk?
The best way to prevent Type 2 and Type 3 Diabetes is to limit your consumption of milk, cheese and processed dairy foods.
If you are concerned about your health, it is recommended that you check with your doctor.
A variety of dairy-free dairy products are available at health food stores, including almond milk, coconut milk and soy milk.
The United States is home to about 300 million dairy cows, and they produce around one billion litres of milk per day.
