Dairy consumption guidelines ‘should be revised’


New Delhi, August 30, 2018:  Guidelines that advise people to limit how much dairy food — particularly yogurt and cheese — they eat should be revised, according to new research.

It found that higher overall consumption of dairy products is linked to a lower risk of premature death from all causes and “cerebrovascular causes” such as stroke.

Drinking milk, on the other hand, was found to be associated with a higher risk of coronary heart disease.

However, the researchers also say that this needs further investigation according to medicalnewstoday.com.

Meanwhile, they recommend that the guideline for milk consumption should be to drink fat-free or low-fat milk, especially for those who drink a lot of milk.

Maciej Banach, who is a professor in the Department of Hypertension at Medical University of Lodz in Poland, and his colleagues analyzed national survey data from the United States and confirmed their results in a further analysis of pooled data from several other studies.

Their findings feature at the 2018 annual congress of the European Society of Cardiology, held in Munich, Germany.
