A scientific study has found that adults who eat a diet rich in dairy products have a 25% lower risk of heart disease.
Previous research has linked dairy products to heart problems, because ingredients such as milk and cheese are high in cholesterol and fat.
However, the results of a study conducted by Australian scientists at the George Institute for Global Health, confirmed the positive protective effect of dairy products on heart health.
In their study, the results of which were published in the journal “Plus Medicine”, the researchers advised to eat unsweetened or salt-free dairy products.
The study included 4,000 people, and they were followed over a period of 16 days, and data related to cardiovascular health and deaths that occurred during this period were recorded.
The results were compared with 17 other similar studies, involving 43,000 people from the United States, Denmark and the United Kingdom, to confirm the findings of the Australian researchers.
The data showed that people who ate more dairy products in their diet were 25 percent less likely to have heart problems, compared to those who ate the least.
The British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, quoted the lead author of the study, Dr. Cathy Trio, as saying: “Dairy products are a major source of vitamin B12, which is important in building red blood cells and maintaining the health of the nervous system, and they also contain potassium, which plays an important role in maintaining on nerve and muscle health.
She added: “To get the best results for dairy products, it is recommended to eat low-fat, unsweetened, and low-salt products.”
Heart and circulatory diseases cause about 160,000 deaths a year in the United Kingdom, while they are behind 655,000 deaths in the United States.
