Scientists Link Consumption Of Full-Fat Dairy Products With Reduced Heart Disease

August 4, 2010: 09:01 AM EST
A 16-year Australian study looking for links between dairy food consumption and health problems found no association with reduced mortality rates, but did find lower rates of cardiovascular disease (CVD) among people who consumed the most full-fat dairy foods. However, no health associations were found for low-fat dairy, specific foods such as yogurt or milk, or calcium and vitamin D, the researchers said. The study followed 1,529 adult Australians aged 25–78 years at the start for an average of 14 years, gathering dietary information from questionnaires. Of the 177 deaths reported during the study, 61 were due to CVD and 58 were due to cancer. The scientists concluded that “a possible beneficial association between intake of full-fat dairy and cardiovascular mortality” should be studied further.
