This recipe calls for whole-fat yogurt, even though medical professionals have been conditioning us to reach for low- or non-fat choices for the last 40 years.

More recently, studies have found that a natural substance in dairy fat may reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes.  Additionally, the consumption of low-fat dairy foods may contribute to failure to ovulate in women and cause higher incidences of acne in teenage boys. 

Dr. Weil, a Harvard-educated medical doctor, recommends consuming high-quality, organic dairy products in moderation.
