ABSTRACTMost of the recent observational studies have failed to find an association between dairy intake and increased risk of cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease and stroke, regardless of milk fat content. The purpose of this review is to examine the published research on the relationship between milk products containing milk fat and cardiovascular health. Despite their saturated fat content, there is no clear evidence of an association between dairy intake and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Consequently, the current dietary recommendations to restrict saturated fat should be assessed for every case.
