Dairy Products Are Good for You

Here’s some good news to brighten up your day. Despite what our most seriously scientific nutrition experts have been telling us, eating dairy products is not going to give us heart disease. In fact, eating more full-fat dairy products will lower your risk of heart disease.

Who could have imagined that our experts could get it so wrong?

Newsweek has the story, (via Maggie’s Farm) with all of the gory details:

Eating three servings of dairy products a day could lower the risk of heart disease, a study suggests.

After analyzing the diets of more than 130,000 people in almost two dozen countries, scientists found that eating the equivalent of one serving (244 grams, or 8.6 ounces) of full-fat milk or yogurt, a 15 gram (0.6 ounce) slice of cheese or a teaspoon of butter could benefit health.

The findings, published in The Lancet, contradict dietary recommendations that advise against consuming full-fat dairy products. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s dietary guidelines for 2015 to 2020, for instance, suggest eating fat-free or low-fat dairy in its key recommendations.

Eating one slice of cheese a day has been linked to lower rates of cardiovascular disease and mortality, in a study published in The Lancet.

Are dairy products good for us if they are enriched with melamine and other nutritional fortifiers?
