Benefits of Dairy, Particularly Milk and Yogurt, Get Boost in New PURE Analysis

In a U-turn that’s most likely left no-dairy and low-fat dairy folks peddling over a cliff, researchers say that dairy products are now not only good for you, but good in their full-fat forms. Known as the “PURE” study — short for Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology — the findings show that individuals who consume two servings of dairy per day are 16 percent less likely to experience cardiovascular events. According to tctMD, this includes high-fat dairies presently vilified by government dietary guidelines. Low-fat dairy proponents, however, say this isn’t going to change their minds or the direction they’ve been going.

I’m not surprised that low-fat pushers are digging in their heels and refusing to turn around and take a fresh look at the worn path they’ve carved against healthy fats and dairy, including raw milk in any form, be it cheese, yogurt or a glass of pure milk. From the standpoint of raw milk, there are many reasons it’s far and above better than any pasteurized, homogenized product on a grocery shelf. From proteins to probiotics to enzymes, omega-3, calcium and assorted vitamins and minerals, raw milk is entirely different, and by far the healthier option.

From the fat standpoint, research has debunked the low-fat, no-fat recommendations that Big Ag, Big Dairy and government regulations have saddled you with. It’s been proven that saturated fats do NOT clog your arteries or promote heart disease. And when it comes to milk’s saturated fats, analyses in one study have revealed that the mortality rate over a 22-year period was identical regardless of levels — a finding that exonerates whole milk as a health wrecker.

In fact, people with higher levels of heptadecanoic acid — a component of butterfat — actually have a 42 percent LOWER risk of stroke. Additionally, still other research shows that eating high-fat cheese raises your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, which is thought to be protective against metabolic diseases and heart disease. The bottom line is, we’ve known for some time that full-fat dairy is good for you.

So, now that you know all this, and while the industry is stuck in the mud on it, what do you with this new information? I’m hoping it will inspire you to check out my book, “Fat for Fuel,” and my new upcoming book, “Superfuel,” which can tell you the ins and outs of how, by eating healthy fats like butter and whole milk, you can get on the road to burning fat for fuel, and helping yourself fight heart disease, diabetes, and more.
