While cheese may not be that healthy, a new study states that when you eat full fat products of the dairy, they are not as bad as they were thought earlier. Eating yogurt, milk or cheese that is full fat doesn’t necessarily increase heart attack risk, according to a study that was published in the Epidemiology Journal of Europe via Guardian.
In this study, the researchers did an analysis of about 29 studies that were conducted earlier, which looked into the link of the risks of cardiovascular diseases and dairy products. The findings of this study were that these products of the dairy had next to no effect on cardiovascular areas.
The report reads that meta-analysis showed that no immediate associations are there between health outcomes like cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, all-cause mortality and total, high and low fat dairy, milk.
The European experts were the one who coalesced this research. The study had one person from Netherlands and one was from Denmark.
One of the researchers, Ian Givens said that there is a widespread belief, but a mistaken one among the general public that products of the dairy can be bad for you in general. This is a misconception. The research that they had done shows that this belief is wrong. In the past five to ten years, there has been a lot of publicity about how fats increase cardiovascular disease risk and this belief has grown now. But these saturated fats actually don’t increase the risk of the above mentioned diseases.
The government, on the other hand, still suggests the people to watch their consumption of dairy.
A Public Health England spokesman told the media that dairy products do form an important portion of a balanced diet that is known to be healthy, but many of these dairy products are high on salt and saturated fat. As the general populous is having a little too much of both of these, it increases the heart disease risk.
The researchers still stand by what their report states.
Givens states that their meta-analysis included a lot of participants and they are confident that their results are accurate and robust.
