You mean that all those years they told me that dairy fat was going to kill me…they were wrong?
Seriously, it’s just one study, but reading this sort of thing makes me wish researchers could just come out and say:
Honestly, we don’t have a clue what’s good for you and not good for you – and all the research has us just as confused as you.
They won’t, however.
Here’s a quote from the story:
The researchers found that people with the highest levels of milk fat biomarkers, suggesting they consumed the most dairy fat, were actually at lower risk of heart attack; for women, the risk was reduced by 26 percent, while for men risk was 9 percent lower.

Excellent. These studies are slowly piling up.
It’s tricky to decipher these. It could be the diary fat is good for you. It could be that fat in general is good for you. It could be that the fat or diary fat is better for you than the carbs or whatever you would have eaten instead. It could even be that people with certain biomarkers have certain genetic predispositions.
