LONDON — University of Cambridge researchers found eating yogurt reduces a person’s chances of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

The study found eating yogurt and other fermented dairy products reduces the chances by nearly 30 per cent compared with those who don’t eat yogurt.

The probiotic bacteria in yogurt receives the credit for mediating inflammation and decreasing the risk of  diabetes and other auto-immune diseases.

Researches suggest eating approximately four to five half-cup servings a week to receive the benefits.
