Editor's note: Full Fat RAW Milk (A2) is the only milk you should drink! It's how God intended. Holsteins ARE NOT A2- Goats, sheeps, Jersey and Guernsey's are!
Americans have been led to believe that all fat is bad for your health. In addition, we’ve been told to ditch dairy products. But now a blockbuster new study debunks both myths.
Researchers at the University of Texas’ School of Public Health studied 3,000 adults over the age of 65 and measured the levels of three fatty acids found in dairy products in their blood for 13 years. They published their findings in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
"Our findings not only support, but also significantly strengthen, the growing body of evidence which suggests dairy fat, contrary to popular belief, does not increase the risk of heart disease or overall mortality in older adults, “ said Marcie Otto, lead author and assistant professor of epidemiology, human genetics and environmental science at UT’s School of Public Health, according to Newsweek.
This new research joins other studies that showed eating higher levels of fatty acids reduced the risk of diabetes. Another study showed that women who ate full-fat products—especially fatty dairy—were less likely to gain weight while undergoing menopause. Both diabetes and obesity are leading causes of stroke and heart attack.
Otto and her team found that none of the fatty acids found in high fat dairy products were linked to a higher risk of dying. In fact, one of the fats was actually linked to a LOWER risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Researchers showed that those who had higher levels of fatty acids from dairy products had a 42 percent lower risk of dying from stroke. Read More
