 or overall mortality in older adults. In addition to not contributing to death, the results suggest that one fatty acid present in dairy may lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, particularly from stroke

Nearly 3,000 adults age 65 years and older were included in the study, which measured plasma levels of three different fatty acids found in dairy products at the beginning in 1992 and again at six and 13 years later.

Lots of conflicts of interest in the board that runs American journal of clinical nutrition.

There's lots of this, the meat and dairy institutes pay for ltos of positive results and ahvebeen caught doing ut many times, as has the sugar industry.

You are what you eat, if you eat a lot of saturated fat then your triglycerides increase, if you eat less saturated fat they decrease.

Balance is the key, include fat-eaters in your diet (porridge, seaweed etc).

Bacon and eggs for breakfast is a good example of propaganda started by the meat and dairy industries, read up on the egg marketing board, it'd be funny if it wasn't so insidious.

>triglycerides increase

My wife's family tends to run high on triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.  Recently she had a blood panel and her numbers were higher than they should have been.  The doctor gave her the usual advice  which was cut out the fried food and exercise more -- not very permanent to her because she hardly ever eats fried food and she gets plenty of daily activity.

I convinced her to try modifying her diet to bestially eat the way I've been eating for years.  She cut out grain and sugar.  She didn't go very high fat, but wasn't avoiding it ether.  She basically eat meat, veggies and fruit.  After just a month her triglycerides and LDL were much improved.  To be clear, this was not a ketogenic diet, but rather a diet void of grain and sugar; basically a diet free of any refined food*.


* she would have a small amount of dark chocolate as a treat at the end of the day, so not entirely free

Sounds like a good balanced diet, i like a little grain in mine but not a lot. 'free of any refined food' is a key point.
