Dairy health risks debunked
The push towards nondairy ‘milk’ substitutes and other products, all in the name of better health, has been dealt a blow, with a new independent study finding no links between dairy and milk and allcause mortality, coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease.
The European Journal of Epidemiology conducted a large-scale review of 29 previously published studies, by scientists in the UK, Denmark and the Netherlands, looking at the diets of 938,465 participants over the last 35 years, 93,158 of whom had died.
Their health was unaffected by dairy intake, whether high or low fat. So while diet may still be considered one of the most important factors in determining good health, the science is clear there’s no need to give up the cheddar.
