A new research has claimed that cheese can prevent diabetes, even as the current health guidelines advise cutting back on dairy products. British and Dutch researchers found that eating just two slices of cheese a day cuts the risk of type 2 diabetes by 12 per cent, the Daily Mail reported. Diabetes can cause heart attacks, strokes, blindness and nerve problems, without yet having been diagnosed. The researchers looked at the diets of 16,800 healthy adults and 12,400 patients with type 2 diabetes from eight European countries, including the UK.
