Another study finds people consuming full-fat dairy products are healthier

Whole Milk

Yet another study has found that people consuming full-fat dairy products are healthier. People consuming low-fat products have more obesity-related problems.

This resulted in another round of criticism of the obsolete low-fat dietary recommendations:

    You must be joking. This is another low-quality food questionnaire study. Like all these observational epi studies, it's garbage. Why do we attack such studies when they find, oh, say, meat causes cancer, which we don't like, but embrace them when they find results we like?

    We have to be more stringent here lest we open ourselves to charges of double-standards and cherry-picking. This study isn't worth discussing, any more than the meat=cancer nonsense.

    Martha: do you mean it's garbage without a single redeeming feature? Or is it sufficient to formulate a hypothesis, which will then need to go through further investigation for validation?
