Three Glasses of Milk a day can keep heart diseases away

ACCORDING TO A GLOBAL OBSERVATIONAL STUDY, people who consumed three servings of whole fat dairy per day had lower rates of mortality and cardiovascular disease compared to those who consumed less than 0.5 serving of whole fat dairy per day. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. The consumption of dairy should not be discouraged and should even perhaps be encouraged in low-income and middle-income countries where dairy consumption is low. Lead author Dr. Mahshid Dehghan said, “Our findings support that consumption of dairy products might be beneficial in preventing mortality and cardiovascular disease, especially in lowincome and middle-income countries where dairy consumption is much lower than in North America or Europe.”

The evidence suggests that some saturated fats may be beneficial to cardiovascular health, and dairy products may also contain other potentially beneficial compounds, including specific amino acids, unsaturated fats, vitamin K1, and K2 and calcium.
