Three Servings of Dairy a Day May Cut the Risk of Heart Disease
New research, conducted by a team of scientists from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, finds that people who consume three servings of dairy, including milk, cheese, butter, or cream, a day are almost two times less likely to suffer from heart disease and strokes than people who consume less dairy.
For their study, the researchers analyzed the data from more than 136,000 people from 21 countries aged between 35 and 70 who had taken part in the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiological (PURE) study. The study focused on environmental, societal, and biological effects on obesity and chronic health issues.
Dr. Mahshid Meghan, a senior research associate at McMaster University, explains: “What I really want to emphasize is that consumption shouldn't be discouraged but encouraged especially in low-income countries and even in high-income countries where consumption is low. We are not saying people eating seven servings of dairy a day should increase their intake, but that three servings - moderation - is good for you.'
