    Dairy fats reduce waistlines!

    Results

    197 men (15%) developed central obesity during follow-up. A low intake of dairy fat at baseline (no butter and low fat milk and seldom/never whipping cream) was associated with a higher risk of developing central obesity (OR 1.53, 95% CI 1.052.24) and a high intake of dairy fat (butter as spreadand high fat milk and whipping cream) was associated with a lower risk of central obesity (OR 0.52, 95% CI 0.330.83) as compared with medium intake (all other combinations of spread, milk, and cream) after adjustment for intake of fruit and vegetables, smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity, age, education, and profession. The associations between dairy fat intake and central obesity were consistent across body mass index categories at baseline.

    Conclusion


    A high intake of dairy fat was associated with a lower risk of central obesity and a low dairy fat intake was associated with a higher risk of central obesity.
    Perhaps the study was funded by Swedish Dairy Council

    Surprisingly it wasn't..

    This study was supported by AFA Insurance, LRF Research foundation, The Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research, and Kronoberg County Council.

    Good news. We've switched back to whole milk, whole not "low fat" yoghurt, and butter a while back.
