When the blood contains too much, it clogs the plaque (cholesterol) in the walls of the arteries of the heart and brain. If left untreated, this plaque can lead to heart disease, stroke and stroke. There are many factors that can cause a person to have high cholesterol, and your diet is one of the most important factors. Milk consumption is also believed to increase cholesterol, but a new study suggests otherwise.
There is no link between milk and high cholesterol levels in the body. People with high cholesterol often skip milk because they think cholesterol is the primary cause of the problem. But new research shows that regular consumption of milk does not increase cholesterol levels.

Reports indicate that eliminating unhealthy fats from your diet is critical to lowering high cholesterol. Research published in the International Journal of Obesity has found that there is no link between milk consumption and high cholesterol levels.
For the study, the team examined three large population studies. The team studied the data of 19 million people and used a genetic approach to avoid confusion. They found that people who drank a lot of milk had lower levels of good and bad cholesterol, even though they had a higher BMI than those who did not drink milk. In a review of previous major studies, it was found that people who drank milk daily had a 14% reduction in coronary artery disease. The researchers used a genetic approach to milk consumption with a mutation in the lactase gene involved in the digestion of milk sugar known as lactose. The study found that genetic variation in the ability of people to absorb lactose is the best way to identify those who consume more milk.
According to UK Biobank data, people with the lactase genetic variant have an 11% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. However, the study did not find any clear evidence that high milk consumption was linked to diabetes and inflammatory biomarkers.
