Frequently Asked Questions and Articles on Dairy

Put down the apple and have some cheddar
Although both cheese and meat are lumped into the “watch out!” category in heart health recommendations, dairy products often show neutral or positive associations with cardiovascular health. But how do cheese-rich diets fare in randomized trials when compared to other diets? This trial tested three diets against each other in a highly controlled fashion: a cheese diet, meat diet, and high-carb diet.
