Study Finds Health Benefit To Consuming Full-fat Dairy

Nov 11, 2015 11:00 PM EST | By Jaja Agpalo


A new study has found out that there may be health benefits we can get from consuming whole-fat dairy products.

Australian Food News reported that scientists discovered making full-fat dairy as part of a diet can lower the chances of an individual experiencing metabolic syndrome. It added that Metabolic Syndrome is a group of disorders which occur together and increase the risk of developing stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

At least 35 percent of Australian adult population has metabolic syndrome. As a matter of fact, the rate is even higher amongst those with diabetes.

Scientists has determined the link between eating full-fat cheese, yoghurt, milk and other dairy products in the study which was published in the latest Journal of Nutrition. Moreover, the reduced chance of experiencing metabolic syndrome after studying the diets of 9835 Brazilian adults aged between 35 to 74 years of age.

"Dietary recommendations to avoid full-fat dairy intake are not supported by our findings." the researchers concluded.

In a separate report, it was revealed that people who eat full-fat dairy are no more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes than people who stick to low-fat dairy. Additionally, Time shared that full-fat dairy might actually be better for you when it comes to weight gain.

"In terms of obesity, we found no support for the notion that low-fat dairy is healthier," Dr. Mario Kratz, first author of the review and a nutrition scientist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, said. He said that 18 of the 25 studies included in his team's review reported lower body weights, less weight gain or lower risk for obesity among full-dairy eaters.

The other seven studies were unconvincing and inconclusive. "None of the research suggested low-fat dairy is better," Mario said.

Essentially, the foundation for all your "fat is evil" beliefs may have always been feeble. At the same time, none of this means you have to gorge yourself on full-fat dairy. "We shouldn't swing the pendulum too far in the other direction and say, 'Put butter in everything and eat as much dairy as you want,'" Mario warned.
