Nanny Unbans Dairy
Those of you of a certain age (mid 40's and beyond) will doubtless recall the health advice of the era when we were kiddy winkies, about the benefits of drinking milk and eating dairy products.
Indeed, the state even gave children free milk each day in school. Government cuts in the early 70's put paid to the free milk, but the advice about the benefits of consuming dairy products continued.
NB: Historical note, contrary to the popular myth of the time, Maggie Thatcher was not the person responsible for cutting free school milk (she had to implement the policy); it was Ted Heath who ordered it to be cut.
Anyhoo, up to the age of around 14 or so I was consuming around 3 pints of milk a day at home and look at me now!
As time moved on Nanny, in her infinite wisdom, took advice from so called "medical experts" who decreed that milk and dairy products were in fact bad for people.
The "Butchers' profession" has a higher than average percentage of people who are substance abusers (ie booze, fags and drugs). Quite why Nanny is so enthralled with their advice, everytime they change their mind about something, I don't know (remember they used to be very keen on bleeding people).
Anyhoo, plus ca change, the Butchers' profession has now decreed that dairy products are in fact good for children. Children who eat plenty of dairy foods such as milk and cheese can expect to live longer, according to a study by the University of Bristol and Australia's Queensland Institute of Medical Research.
Despite dairy containing artery furring fat and cholesterol, high consumption does not raise the heart disease risk!
I could have told Nanny that!
Needless to say not everyone wants to accept this, 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.
In the meantime, we advise parents to opt for a diet rich in fruit and vegetables and low in saturated fat and salt for the overall health of their children."
As I have often said on this site, fat is good for you. A car engine without oil seizes up. The same applies to the human body, fat in the veins helps the blood flow more easily;)
