High-fat foods such as cheese, butter, and whole milk are good for us according to the latest research.
In the 1980’s we were all told to eat low-fat foods due to cholesterol and health concerns. This resulted in the food industry loading up the foods with sugar and fillers to make them taste good, while many American’s became less healthy and some developed diabetes.
If you love butter, cheese, and whole milk instead of the lower fat equivalents, there is great news. These foods are not only good for us but should be part of a healthy diet.
Years ago, Americans drank much more milk than they do now. Milk had vitamin D and vitamin D deficiency as rare. With the covid-19 virus, we found out the vitamin D deficiency can cause cytokine storm which resulted in an autoimmune response that could kill us.
A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition studied 22 years of data concerning saturated fats and found out that people had the same rate of death whether they ate or did not eat these fats.
Simply explained, these fats are perfectly fine for our cardiovascular systems. We also found out that certain fatty acids from these foods are good for us and offer benefits to our health.
Check out this article that vindicates these foods. Happy eating!
The Vindication of Cheese, Butter, and Full-Fat Milk
Research has exonerated dairy fats as a cause of early death, but low-fat products continue to be misperceived as healthier.

As a young child, I missed a question on a psychological test: “What comes in a bottle?”
The answer was supposed to be milk. I said beer.
Milk almost always came in cartons and plastic jugs, so I was right. But this isn’t about rehashing old grudges. I barely even think about it anymore! The point is that the test was a relic of a time before me, when milk did come in bottles. It arrived on doorsteps each morning, by the hand of some vanishing man. And just as such a world was alien to me as a kid, the current generation of small children might miss a similar question: “Where does milk come from?”
Many would likely answer almonds or beans or oats.
