Are Milk Consumption and Cardiovascular Diseases Related?

A recent review of selected research from multiple sources suggests that there is no link between milk consumption and an increase in risk of heart disease, stroke or total mortality.

Via The Times Of India:

Wageningen and Harvard University researchers examined 17 studies from Europe, USA and Japan, and found no link between the consumption of regular or low-fat dairy and any increased risk of heart disease, stroke or total mortality.

The meta-analysis, as reported by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concludes:

This dose-response meta-analysis of prospective studies indicates that milk intake is not associated with total mortality but may be inversely associated with overall CVD risk; however, these findings are based on limited numbers.
