Keeping Away From High-Fat Dairy

According to an article in the June issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, we need to keep away from high-fat dairy. In a large study, older adults who reported eating more high-fat dairy, along with a lower intake of poultry, rice, pasta, and (not surprise) low-fat dairy, were 40 percent more  likely to die in the 10-year study period than those with healthier diets.  Sweets were killers, too:  People who indulged in more desserts (this group also reported a lower intake of fruits, veggies, and seafood) faced a 37 percent higher risk of death.

So, what does all this mean?  We need to make sure we have our families eating healthy low-fat dairy when they are young.  That way it won't be an issue later on in life.  When children are raised on a low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar, foods, they are less likely to desire those things as adults.  Start by cutting back on unhealthy choices and substituting for healthier foods.  Everyone will feel better!
