Low-Fat Yogurt May Cut High Blood Pressure Risk

Low-fat yogurt may help lower your risk for high blood pressure, according to new research.
A new study of more than 2,100 adults presented at the American Heart Association’s High Blood Pressure Research 2012 Scientific Sessions Wednesday found that those who reported eating more low-fat yogurt were 31 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who ate less.
The researchers also found that, over the course of the 15-year study, low-fat yogurt eaters, on average, had lower increases in systolic blood pressure — the “first” ot top number” in a blood pressure reading — compared to those who did not eat low-fat yogurt.
These results held up even after adjusting for weight, use of blood pressure medications and lifestyle factors, including diet.
