Cheese 'can prevent diabetes'

Eating just two slices of cheese a day can prevent diabetes, scientists have claimed.

The new research contradicts current health guidelines which advise cutting back on high-fat foods - including dairy products - to help prevent type-2 diabetes.

Scientists in Britain and Holland examined the diets of 16,800 healthy adults and a further 12,400 people diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.

The study found those who ate at least 55 grammes of cheese a day - around two slices - were 12 per cent less likely to develop the illness.
