Mama told you to drink your milk. Now there is evidence that she might have been inadvertently protecting you from developing insulin resistance syndrome (IRS) during your young adult years.
In a study of 3,157 subjects, ages 18 to 30, researchers found that those who were overweight but consumed at least 35 servings of dairy products per week were 72 percent less likely to develop two or more components of insulin resistance syndrome. The same did not hold true for subjects with a leaner body mass index.
IRS consists of obesity, glucose intolerance, high blood pressure and abnormal blood lipid levels.
Milk and milk drinks were the most frequently consumed dairy products, followed by butter, cream, and cheeses.
