Full-Fat Dairy Products Will not Lead to Heart Attack or Stroke

The team analyzed twenty-nine studies and discovered that dairy products, including high-fat ones, do not increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Ian Givens, a professor of nutrition at Reading University, explains: “There’s quite a widespread but mistaken belief among the public that dairy foods, in general, can be bad for you, but that’s a misconception. While it is a wide belief, our research shows that that’s wrong.”
