Green milk heals hearts

Want you eat, you are and what a cow eats, it’s milk is. There is no surprise to the naturally minded then to discover that the milk which comes from cows who are grazing on grassland as nature intended is better for you than cows fed on feedlots. Past experiments have shown that cows who feed on grass produce milk that contains five times more of a fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) compared to feedlot fed cows. Animal based studies have suggested that CLA may be good for the heart and assist in weight loss. To bring all this together researchers wanted to find out if people who drink milk from grass fed cows receive protection for their heart as a result. To investigate the researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health went to Costa Rica where grassland grazing of dairy cows is still the common practise. They gathered 4000 subjects; 2000 who had experienced a heart attack and 2000 who had not. They then measured the amount of CLA that each person had in their fat tissues. Those with the highest levels of CLA were 36 per cent less likely to have had a heart attack than those with the lowest CLA concentrations. This was the case even when taking into account other risk factors like smoking and high blood pressure. Since saturated fat is not good for your heart and milk is a source of saturated fat, then the CLA must offset the risks that saturated fats pose. It is still not a good idea to drink huge quantities of milk but if you do drink it then going for milk that is as close to naturally produced as possible is best. It just backs up what the environmental moovement has been saying all along; natural is udderly the best.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
