Consumption of full-fat cheese doesn’t raise chance of heart attack: study

While many health experts might be suggesting people to decrease consumption of full-fat dairy products, a new study has revealed that these products are not as bad as once they were thought to be.

According to the new study, conducted by an international team of experts, full-fat dairy products like cheese, milk or yogurt doesn’t boost the risk of deadly conditions like heart attack and stroke.

Experts, including two from England, one each from Denmark and the Netherlands, conducted an analysis of 29 prior researches that looked at the link between dairy products and risk of heart disease. They found that these full-fat dairy products have a “neutral” upshot on those areas.

Sharing their findings, researchers said, “This meta-analysis showed there were no associations between total dairy, high- and low-fat dairy, milk and the health outcomes including all-cause mortality, coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease.”

They concluded that saturated fats were thought to increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases like heart attack and stroke, but they don’t.

The researchers reported their findings in the most recent edition of the European Journal of Epidemiology.
