Reduced-fat diary diet to lower blood pressure

Reduced-fat diary products have been shown to lower a person's risk of developing and maintaining hypertension according to recent research. A study was conducted on a population that reviewed if the subjects consumed low-fat cheese, milk, and yoghurt. It did not consider other dietary factors, or health preferences. Full-fat dairy has not been shown to be associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure.
