Dairy Intake has Little If Any Effect on Diabetes Risk
The study did not include butter but it did include a range of dairy products with no, low, and full fat content. The study was not large enough to show whether low-fat dairy had an advantage over full-fat products. Also, this study did not examine the associations between milk/dairy and overall health or other specific diseases such as osteoporosis and heart disease.
