More High-Fat Dairy Can Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

dairy

Got Milk? That’s what the old ad campaign from the dairy industry asked. Well, if you want to reduce your chances of heart disease then you should definitely have milk, and a lot of it along with other dairy products. At least that is what a new study says.

So, now we should have more fat in our diets, specifically from dairy. And this is at a time when environmentalists and environmentalists alike continually condemn the dairy industry. This is because the cows are forced to spend their entire lives trapped in small pens, are filled up with steroids and have been bred to need to be milked at least three times a day.

Also, the dairy industry consumes a tremendous amount of energy and other resources while leaving behind a tremendous amount of waste that pollutes the environment. And all those cows release flatulence that are filled with methane gas that increases the problems of climate change.

According to the new study led by Dr. Andrew Mente, assistant professor at McMaster University in Canada, a diet comprised of higher amounts of fruit, vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish, and whole-fat dairy is associated with lower CVD (cardio vascular disease) and mortality in all world regions, especially in countries with lower income where consumption of these foods is low.

So, the study’s authors proposed the new PURE Diet and published their results in the European Heart Journal. The new diet recommends 2 to 3 servings a day of fruit, 2 to 3 servings a day of vegetables, 3 to 4 servings weekly of legumes (beans, lentils, peas), 7 servings weekly of nuts, 2 to 3 servings weekly of fish and 2 servings a day of dairy.

“Low-fat foods have taken center stage with the public, food industry and policymakers, with nutrition labels focused on reducing fat and saturated fat,” said study author Dr. Andrew Mente. “Our findings suggest that the priority should be increasing protective foods such as nuts (often avoided as too energy dense), fish and dairy, rather than restricting dairy (especially whole-fat) to very low amounts. Our results show that up to two servings a day of dairy, mainly whole-fat, can be included in a healthy diet. This is in keeping with modern nutrition science showing that dairy, particularly whole-fat, may protect against high blood pressure and metabolic syndrome.”

But you should not be in any hurry to switch over to a high dairy diet. Studies such as this get released all the time. Remember how in the 1990s fat was the enemy of health so everyone switched over to fat free foods? Then we were told to have fewer cards and more red meat, after years in which red meat was said to be bad for our hearts.

But, if you like cheeses and other dairy products you can go on eating them now with a reason to think this is a healthy choice.
