Low-fat dairy could reduce stroke risk

CLEVELAND -  

If you increase the amount of low-fat dairy in your diet you might decrease your risk for stroke.

That's according to a Swedish study.

Researchers think the fortified vitamin-d may have something to do with it or it might be the milk protein, but more studies are needed.

"It's important that we're consuming low-fat dairy versus full-fat dairy," says Andrea Rumschlag of the Cleveland Clinic.  "But also we want to remember that there is not just one magic food that's going to prevent an increased risk of heart disease or stroke later on in life."

Rumschlag says low-fat dairy products are just one piece of the puzzle.
