Drink Milk, Lower Heart Disease Risk

by Jodee on July 23, 2009

It looks like your mother was right when she told you to drink your milk. British researchers at the University of Cardiff and the University of Reading have discovered that drinking moo juice regularly can lower your risk of heart disease by up to 20 percent.

Milk does contain saturated fat, as well as sugars, but it also contains calcium, potassium, and protein. Vitamin D is added to the product, which helps the body to absorb much-needed calcium.

The benefits of drinking milk outweigh the negative factors associated with the saturated fat that it contains. Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and it makes sense that we do all that we can to lower our risk of developing it. Drink milk more often and lower your risk; it’s that simple.
