High-fat diet doesn't increase heart attack risk

You've been told to keep off the high-fat, dairy foods - such as milk, cheese and butter - in order to protect your heart

You've been told to keep off the high-fat, dairy foods - such as milk, cheese and butter - in order to protect your heart. But a major new study has discovered that the diet doesn't make any difference to your chances of suffering a heart attack.
People who eat a high-fat diet are no more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who follow current medical advice - and this is true even for 'voracious' eaters of high-fat foods, who consume 593 grams of dairy foods every day.
Researchers from Brown University uncovered the medical myth of the high-fat diet when they looked at the diets of 1,815 people who had suffered a heart attack and compared them to the same number of people who had not had any heart problems. To their surprise, they discovered that a high-fat diet was not a factor - people who had kept to a low-fat, low-dairy diet were just as likely to suffer a heart attack.
The high-fat diet could be going the same way as the discredited advice that eggs could cause high cholesterol, say the researchers.
