In June 2019 researchers from Israel published their review of the medical scientific literature to assess whether dairy consumption has different gender-specific effects on the risk of diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular disease. Results showed that a higher dairy intake appeared to reduce the risk of both diabetes type 2 (16 studies) and cardiovascular disease (13 studies). A further analysis revealed that there was a significant association between a high dairy intake and reduced risk of diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular disease in women but not in men.
