Fans of froyo - you might want to swap your love of the low-fat treat for regular ice cream. Because according to a study from Harvard’s Chan School of Public Health, eating too much frozen yogurt and other low-fat dairy products raises the risk of developing Parkinson’s Disease.
This was a big study, info was collected for about 25 years from 80,736 women and 48,610 men who completed health questionnaires every two years and ones about diet every four years. And it turns out, those who ate three or more servings a day of low-fat dairy had a higher risk for developing Parkinson’s, compared to those who ate no dairy.
“Those who consumed at least three servings of low-fat dairy a day had a 34 percent greater chance of developing Parkinson’s than people who consumed less than one serving per day,” the study authors write.
But the good news here is that there was no connection between an increased risk of the disease and full-fat dairy products. So forget the low-fat stuff and enjoy real ice cream, butter, and whole milk instead.
