Is Full Fat Back?

Skim milk is out, full-fat dairy products are in. Recent research has turned conventional wisdom on its head with the finding that people who consume the highest levels of fat from dairy products have a lower risk of diabetes. Other studies have found that eating high-fat dairy reduces the odds of becoming obese, and may offer protection against cardiovascular disease. All of this is likely to alter food production as farmers and manufacturers race to get more high-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese onto store shelves. Here is a look at the surprising findings and how they might change what’s on your menu.
