Why the white stuff IS the right stuff. Drinking milk 'lowers heart disease risk'

Shoppers have long been urged to 'make mine milk' by UK dairy producers - now scientists have revealed another reason why they should.

Researchers from Harvard and Wageningen University found drinking three glasses of milk could lower the risk of heart disease by 18 per cent.

The finding was highlighted in a paper that examined 17 studies from Europe, the U.S and Japan. The research also found no link between tucking into low-fat dairy foods and any increased risk of stroke or early death. It highlighted a study of more than 20,000 men in the American Journal of Epidemiology, which found increasing levels of calcium above recommended levels could actually reduce the risk of mortality from cancer by 25 per cent.
