Dairy, Saturated Fat and Cardiovascular Disease
For the past three decades it has been widely accepted that saturated fat increases the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Recent research, however, has revealed the original hypothesis may have been too simplistic, suggesting we need to look beyond merely the type of fat to the entire nutrient composition of a food when assessing the link between dietary intake and disease.
Join us for this FREE webinar, when Professor Paul Nestel, of the Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, explores the latest findings on saturated fat, dairy, and cardiovascular disease, and the early indication that dairy consumption, especially low fat dairy, may reduce the risk of incident diabetes.
