In a recent study, researchers found that eating approximately one serving of fermented dairy products each day reduces the risk of heart disease, which may have a positive effect on the nearly 610,000 who die from heart disease each year in the U.S.
The authors also found that those consuming unfermented dairy products have an increased risk of heart disease. However, they lumped low-fat, full-fat, soy and flavored milk into the same category of unfermented dairy products
Although no association was found between eating yogurt and having a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes, researchers from Harvard University have linked consumption of full-fat dairy to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality
Consider using raw, unpasteurized milk from a local dairy farmer to enjoy microbial and nutritional benefits
