Ignoring This Traditional Advice Could SAVE Your Heart
And lower your risk of cardiovascular disease
If there’s one thing the government should stay out of, it’s giving health advice.
Over the years, they’ve given more bad diet advice than Papa Bear in the Berinstein Bears.
The list of downright bad advice is long, growing — and (frankly) embarrassing.
That’s why if you’ve been following their advice on what kind of milk to drink (and what to avoid), then you’ll definitely want to read this.
Because ignoring their advice can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease…and an early death.
The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, put out by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, recommend consuming fat-free and low-fat dairy.
They claim that saturated fat increases cholesterol levels, which increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Well, you can dump those dietary recommendations down the drain — right along with your fat-free and low-fat milk!
Newer studies have consistently shown that consuming full-fat dairy does NOT increase your risk of cardiovascular disease. That’s a shocking revelation to most people who have been drinking tasteless, watered-down dairy products for much of their lives.
But this most recent study is even more shocking: It shows that people with higher intakes of full fat dairy have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
What makes this study especially noteworthy is the fact that it didn’t rely on food frequency questionnaires, which can potentially be unreliable.
Instead, the researchers measured the blood concentration of certain fatty acids, which are the fat building blocks found in dairy foods.
This provides a more objective measure of dairy fat intake.
And when the researchers combined these results with 17 similar studies from other countries, the results were all the same:
They all linked full fat dairy intake with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
And a study from just a few years ago found that consuming whole fat dairy can actually lower your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and stroke.
The findings were so strong that the study’s author suggested that the current national dietary guidelines need to be revised.
I couldn’t agree more.
We already know that dairy is a rich source of potassium and calcium, which can help build strong bones in young people — and helps maintain strong bones as you get older.
But the fact that full fat dairy might just save your life puts this beverage in a class all its own.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go pour myself a tall, cold glass of full fat milk.
