Consuming dairy products do not increase the risk of heart diseases in spite of the popularly held notion that the saturated fat present in dairy items are harmful for the heart.

Researchers from Brown University used the data from a previous study which involved more than 3,600 Costa Ricans who were divided equally into two groups.

The researchers found that dairy products had no impact on the health of the participants' hearts and postulated that while the dairy products did contain saturated fat, other health nutrients cancelled out the bad effect.

"We looked at heart attack risk and dairy products in their entirety and then looked at separate components of those dairy products, including fats, and it turns out that the results are null. Perhaps the evidence is not there", lead researcher Stella Aslibekyan wrote in her report that has been published in the journal Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases.
