A global team of medical experts has found that people who consume more milk and milk products (dairy products) also have a lower risk of heart disease.
The study, published in the latest issue of the online research journal PLoS Medicine, looked at 18 studies on milk consumption and heart health over the past 16 years in Sweden, the United States, and the United Kingdom. And were made in Denmark.
A total of more than 47,000 volunteers participated in all of these studies, most of whom had an early age of about 60 years.
This analysis (meta-analysis) found that those who consumed more milk and milk products (such as yogurt, butter, and cheese, etc.) had a significantly lower rate of heart disease.
Not only that, but those who consume the most milk and dairy products in their daily routine have the lowest risk of heart disease.
Compared to those who were less inclined to use dairy products, a large number of them developed heart and arterial diseases later in life.
It should be noted that for the last several years, medical experts have been emphasizing the use of small amounts of milk and dairy products as they contain a lot of fat.
However, several other investigations have shown opposite results.
Research by this joint panel of experts from Australia, the United States, Sweden, and China has also proven the health benefits of milk and milk products.
Kathy Trevo, the lead author of the research paper and professor at the George Institute for Global Health, Australia, says that giving up dairy foods altogether to prevent heart disease is not the answer to the problem, but to increase its severity. Can cause
He suggested that more research be done globally to determine the exact amount of milk and dairy products needed to stay healthy.
