Dairy consumption can help lower rates of cardiovascular diseases

Dairy consumption can help lower rates of cardiovascular diseases

TUESDAY, Sept. 11, 2018 (HealthDay News) - Dairy foods might be your ticket to better heart health, even if you're drinking whole milk and eating rich cheeses, a new study suggests. A higher intake of total dairy-three servings per day-was associated with a lower risk of death and there was no significant association with heart attacks.

The observational see became as soon as in accordance to files from about 136,000 adults who took share within the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) see, which unruffled weight loss program and successfully being files from folks in 21 worldwide locations on 5 continents.

According to the study, consuming three servings of dairy - which include whole-fat dairy such as milk, cheese and butter - per day, was associated with lower rates of heart disease and strokes, compared to lower levels of consumption.

"Current global healthy eating guidelines suggest that people should eat between two and four portions of fat-free or low-fat dairy products such as skimmed milk each day and limit whole fat dairy intake to prevent heart disease".

"It is probably wise and beneficial to be sure you're including dairy in that overall heart-healthy dietary pattern, but we would continue to recommend that you make lower fat selections in the dairy products", Carson told MedPage Today regarding the study, with which she was not involved. The participants completed frequency questionnaires on their consumption of dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese.

"If eating saturated fat is so bad, why do the French, who every day eat much more of it than the Anglo-Saxons, suffer from less than a third the rate of heart disease of Brits?"

"Our results showed an inverse association between total dairy and mortality and major cardiovascular disease", Dehghan said.

The results are in stark contrast to current dietary guidelines which recommend two to four daily servings of fat-free or low-fat dairy and minimising whole-fat dairy products.

After analyzing the diets of over 130,000 people in nearly two dozen countries, scientists concluded the equivalent of one serving of full fat milk or yogurt at 244g, a15g slice of cheese or a teaspoon of butter could be beneficial to health.

Dairy consumption, the researchers chanced on, became as soon as connected to a lower threat of each and each outcomes. "We should not focus on a single nutrient", said Dr. Mahshid Dehghan, the study's lead author. These guidelines are based on evidence that consuming too much saturated fat is known to increase cholesterol levels, which is a known risk factor for heart and circulatory diseases.

Earlier this year the Government's Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) published a consultation on saturated fat, which is part of a process of regularly assessing available evidence to see if guidelines should change. The potential benefits of compounds found in dairy products, such as certain amino acids, vitamins K1 and K2, calcium, magnesium, potassium and some probiotics warrant further investigation. "Three servings is moderate consumption, and moderate consumption is beneficial".

"Dairy products don't need to be excluded from the diet to prevent heart and circulatory diseases and are already part of the eatwell guide, which is the basis for our healthy eating recommendations in the UK". "Therefore, when you're focusing on low-fat dairy, we're scaring people about the harms". Moreover, they suggest that follow-up of 9 years is relatively short, particularly given that entry criteria for the study included those as young as 35 years old, most of whom would have been quite healthy at the time of enrollment.

"Full-fat products are still high in calories and, like everything else, can cause weight gain if eaten to excess".

The findings are consistent with previous meta-analyses of observational studies and randomised trials, according to the researchers.
