American University research - Whole milk is healthier than sugar-added skimmed milk, thus reducing the risk of stroke
Usually many people feel that whole milk is easy to cause overweight so as to avoid it and prefer to skimmed milk. But a recent study from a USA university is found that consuming dairy products such as whole milk and cheese can effectively reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and decrease the risk of stroke by 42%. On the contrary, low-fat dairy products added with much sugar is detrimental to heart health.

Nutrition Science and Policy School of Tufts University in Boston, USA, has conducted a 22-year-long follow-up study and found that 3 fatty acids originated from dairy products have no significant relationship with mortality, heart disease and stroke. One of the fatty acids however is more effective in reducing stroke, heart disease, etc. In conclusion, the more the consumption of whole milk products, the higher the fatty acid level in the human body and the lesser the fatal risk of stroke by 42%.

Marcia Otto, a University Research Professor, said:  Whole-fat dairy products DO NOT increase the risk of heart disease and death to the elderly. This generally is a good news for people who love to eat whole milk, butter, cheese and cheese.
