Dairy food 'extends' childrens' lives

28th July 2009

A follow-up study of research involving 4,374 children in the 1930s in the UK has found those who ate more dairy food tended to live longer.

The study found that consuming 400mg of calcium every day (around a half pint of milk) was associated with a 60% reduction in the risk of dying from stroke. Joanne Murphy of The Stroke Association said: "This is an interesting study, but we need to take a further look to really assess the benefits of milk in reducing the chances of dying from stroke."
