Saturday, March 08, 2014

"In one paper, published by Swedish researchers in the Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care, middle-aged men who consumed high-fat milk, butter and cream were significantly less likely to become obese over a period of 12 years compared with men who never or rarely ate high-fat dairy.

Yep, that's right. The butter and whole-milk eaters did better at keeping the pounds off."

    I believe it too. I drink 1.5 liters of whipping cream a week and gobs of butter on my vegetables. It hasn't impacted me negatively in the slightest.

    "Significantly" Important term. Not just slightly, but significantly.
