MILKY HEART

Relish cows' milk for health

Cows are worshipped by the Hindus since ancient times. Holy cow! It is not wine alone that benefits your heart. Drinking one glass of low fat or fat- free milk daily helps reduce risk of heart diseases, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

 

The study states that adults who had at least one serving of low fat milk or milk products each day had 37 per cent lower odds of poor kidney function linked to heart disease compared to those who drank little or no low fat milk, says an ANI report from Washington.

 

To determine heart disease risk, researchers from various universities in the US and Norway measured the kidney function of more than 5,000 adults between ages 45 to 84.

 

They traced the eating patterns and tested albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR) - a measure when too low, can indicate poor kidney function and an extremely high risk for cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association.
