Just remember: “Four and a half, four and a half.” Eating at least four and a half 4.4-oz servings of low-fat yogurt a week can lower your type-2 diabetes risk by 28%, new data shows.

“Calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D, from fortified dairy, likely contribute to the positive effects of dairy products on diabetes risk,” says study author Nita Forouhi, Ph.D. “Fermented dairy products [like yogurt] may also protect against diabetes as they contain probiotic bacteria and a specific form of vitamin K.”
