Why full-fat milk is back in favour

The Heart Foundation says there is no consistent relationship between full-fat or reduced-fat milk and the risk of heart disease

The Heart Foundation now recommends full-fat milk, cheese and yoghurt or reduced-fat options as part of its updated dietary advice released earlier this week.


This moves away from earlier advice that recommended only reduced-fat dairy when it comes to cardiac health.

So, what’s behind the latest change? And what does this mean for people with high blood pressure or existing heart disease?
