Scientists have found that drinking milk and dairy consumption may lower the risk of high blood pressure.
The study was conducted by Dr Sabita S Soedamah-Muthu et al., from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. Nine studies were conducted with 57,256 individuals and 15,367 cases of hypertension.
The results showed that as total dairy, low-fat dairy and milk (just over two cups a day) consumption increased, the risk for high blood pressure decreased.
These meta-analyses indicate that there is a link between increasing the number of glasses of milk a day and a lower incidence of hypertension.
