A Little Milk Could Go A Long Way For Your Heart

(NAPSA) - As little as one glass of low-fat or fat-free milk could help protect your heart, according to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition-and other research suggests it could be good for your kidneys.


Researchers found that adults who had at least one serving of low-fat milk or milk products each day had 37 percent lower odds of poor kidney function linked to heart disease compared to those who drank little or no low-fat milk.


The National Kidney Foundation estimates that kidney disease affects about 26 million Americans -and kidney disease is both a cause and a consequence of cardiovascular disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans.


Milk provides nine essential nutrients, including calcium, vitamin A, vitamin D, protein and potassium. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend drinking three glasses of low-fat or fat-free milk each day.
