“Yes, you can consume full-fat dairy without causing metabolic disease”

Sharing this recent article seen on Diet Doctor site by Dr Bret Scher

“A new analysis of the PURE study, recently published in BMJ Open Diabetes Research and Care, shows those who consume full-fat dairy have a lower risk of developing metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. 

This adds to the growing body of literature showing full-fat dairy is associated with a lower risk for obesity and has no association with increased risk for heart disease or death. 

As we detailed in our evidence-based guide on saturated fat, there is no quality evidence to suggest dairy, or any other form of saturated fat, is a health concern. 

While the current study is observational and cannot prove dairy reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes, it certainly suggests it isn’t harmful. After all, if those consuming more full-fat dairy had a lower risk of metabolic disease, it is highly unlikely that it causes metabolic disease. 

So, although we have to be careful when attempting to draw conclusions from nutritional epidemiology studies, a negative conclusion is still effective at suggesting no harm. 

How much more evidence do we need to abandon the belief that low-fat dairy is the healthier choice? For me, the answer is clear. None. I just hope nutritional guidelines realize this soon, for the sake of all of our health.”
