New meta-analysis: Dairy not linked to risk of heart attacks or stroke


You can continue eating your cheese, butter and full-fat yoghurt, because it does not increase the risk of heart attacks or stroke. This has been known for some time.

Now a new meta-analysis of observational studies – partly funded by the dairy industry – finds that there’s not even any correlation between these factors. People eating cheese and butter do not get any more heart disease than other people.

There’s quite a widespread but mistaken belief among the public that dairy products in general can be bad for you, but that’s a misconception. While it is a widely held belief, our research shows that that’s wrong.

    What a complete load of rubbish... That's all I have to contribute, which is about the sum total of the dairy-funded 'study'.

    Is it "dairy-funded"?

    We have rightly taken the moral high ground on industry funding of medical studies, lets not now destroy that simply because one such funded study might just agree with what we believe.

    How do you qualify to call it a load of rubbish ? Do you work in medical research ??
