Drinking Milk Or Eating Dairy Products Do Not Increase The Risk Of Stroke And Heart Disease
An analytical study at the University of Reading, England shows no link between stroke, heart attack and cardiovascular diseases with the consumption of cheese, yogurt and other dairy or milk products.
The researchers have analyzed information from about one million patient records and 93,000 death records from 29 studies. The researchers have studied the effects of the consumption of dairy products on coronary heart disease (CHD), cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and death.
The study shows no association between low or high-fat dairy or milk products such as cheese and yogurt and coronary heart disease (CHD), cardiovascular diseases (CVD) or all-cause mortality.
The study shows a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases with the consumption of cheese. Daily consumption of ten grams of cheese is associated with a two percent lower risk of cardiovascular diseases.
The researchers say that the milk or dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt may not damage the health of an individual and they can be part of a healthy diet.
The authors of the study are Jing Guo and Julie Lovegrove and the study was published in the European Journal of Epidemiology.
Diabetes (High Blood Sugar Levels) Protects Malignant Gliomas (Brain Tumors Or Tumours)
A study involving about 800,000 people at the Ohio State University, the United States shows the development of gliomas (brain tumors) may be less likely in one out of 16 patients with diabetes (lower risk of brain cancer).
The researchers say that the understanding of the body's defense mechanism can lead to better understanding of the development of gliomas (a type of tumor or tumour, which will be developed in brain or spine). Till now, there is no cure, treatment or medications for the treatment of the brain tumor or brain cancer and the survival chances are less.
An earlier study shows that hypertension (high blood pressure. BP) can reduce the risk of benign meningioma brain tumor. The researchers say that the rare malignant brain tumors are common among individuals with normal blood sugar or glucose levels. This study may provide a clue to the development of cancers and options for the treatment of cancer.
Even though there may be a lower risk of brain cancer in a patient with diabetes, diabetes can double the risk of cancers such as womb, pancreas and liver and about 50 percent increased the risk of bladder, breast and bowel cancer.
The lead author of the study was Judith Schwartzbaum, an associate professor of epidemiology, Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Benign: Benign tumor grows slowly and they are noncancerous (does not spread to other areas in the body). The common type of benign tumor is meningiomas (spinal cord or brain), lipomas (fat cells), hemangiomas (skin and blood vessels).
Malignant: Malignant tumor is a rapidly growing tumor and it is cancerous. The malignant tumor may be able to spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream, lymphatic system and circulatory system (non-capsulated). They do not stick to the original growth area in the body as they are without adhesion molecules (promoters bond chemically).
