Milk ‘reduces risk of heart disease’

People may want to consider adding more milk to their diet as a study has found that this ingredient can reduce a person's risk of heart disease by 18 per cent.

Researchers from Wageningen University in the Netherlands and Harvard University in the US looked at 17 studies from Europe, the US and Japan to come to this conclusion.

They also found that there is no link between the consumption of regular or low-fat dairy and any increased risk of stroke or early death.

"Milk and dairy are the most nutritious and healthy foods available and loaded with naturally occurring nutrients, such as calcium, potassium and protein, to name a few," said Dr Cindy Schweitzer, technical director at the Global Dairy Platform.

Back in September, research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that participants in a study who drank around two glasses of milk a day lost an average of nearly 12 lbs in weight after two years.

Does your diet include much dairy?

    Bit of a pain if your dairy intolerant though. Ive always understood organic milk to have less hormones and antibiotics than non organic milk though so that may want to be considered??
