The study does not, and does not purport to, show a causal relationship.
EDIT: It appears that the title here has been changed, but to the article title, which is a bit less than ideal since it implies a positive correlation when the study shows a negative correlation (or at least it reads that way to me).
So, we have to be really careful that dairy consumption isn't just proxying for ancestry. Because there are huge genetic variations in CVD mortality across different sub-populations. For example African-Americans have signficantly higher CVD, BP and diabetes risk because of higher rates of APOL1 polymorphism.
I'm not well informed about the causes of lactose intolerance. Is this correlation diet-induced/environmental? Or is it a congenital/racial thing where white people be rich and everyone else is genetically intolerant?
In humans, it appears to be a very recent mutation, probably associated with the domestication of livestock.
But whatever you read, the biggest threat to your health in many ways, will always be stress. So don't panic and remember, quality over quantity every time.
Never did like semi-skimmed milk or margarine, so I just kept on with full fat milk, butter and everything my whole life. Which occasionally has been difficult when in a shop with endless reduced and half fat choices...
These questionnaires are not very good methodology. This is why you get so many contradicting dietary recommendations. Dietary studies tend to rely on them because they are the cheapest option. But they make okay headlines.
I think low fat or normal fat dairy preference is a pretty conscious choice and eventually is habitual.
Most people would be able to answer with good accuracy what type of dairy they prefer.
You don't need to consume dairy to be on keto.
You’re reasoning wildly outside of the study here.
There are still benefits to cutting carbs without going full keto, but not because you'll be '50% keto' or anything, just because there are other health improvements from lowering carbohydrate intake other than possible ketosis.
>What benefit do you see in lowering carbohydrate intake, unless you're conflating e.g. processed white bread with sweet potatoes?
Being able to control my weight, my appetite, much improved HbA1c, lower LDL/TG levels, increased energy levels, no more food cravings, and fasting as part of my daily life. whereas none of these was possible on my high Complex carbs years, and i'm not talking for white bread but whole grains, beans and legumes.
Moderate dairy consumption may help heart health
From the intro:
>An international team of researchers looked at dairy consumption among more than 136,000 people in 21 countries worldwide.
>They found people who had more than 2 servings of dairy products a day were 16% less likely to die or have a heart attack or stroke during an average of 9 years of follow-up.
>Most of the benefit seemed to come from milk and yoghurt, and the effect was strongest in low and middle-income countries, where dairy consumption is generally much lower than the UK.
>The question of whether benefits come from low-fat or full-fat dairy products wasn't conclusively answered in the study.
Oh interesting, do you have a source on that please ?
> the incidence of obesity in French women in 2014 was 24.0% and among French men 23.8%. Overall adult obesity rates in France were significantly ahead of the Netherlands at 19.8%, Germany at 20.1% and Italy at 21.0%, but behind the United Kingdom and the United States at 28.1% and 33.7% respectively.
I am personally very pleased to read that, notwithstanding the need to not base anything on a single study.
You people are fucking retards. This site should be burned to the ground.
