Association between dairy intake and cardiometabolic risk
The number of people living with type 2 diabetes (T2D) is sharply rising, causing global concern [1]. T2D patients are at high risk ofcardiovascular diseases (CVD), which remains the biggest cause of deaths worldwide [2]. In recent years, an increased interest wasobserved in the potential role of dairy intake in relation to these chronic diseases. However, the magnitude and strength of theassociation remains uncertain. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to investigate the association between intake of differentquantaties and types of dairy foods and incident T2D and CVDs in Australian women.[1] World Health Organization.
