Dairy: Dangerous or Delightful❓

By: Austin Perlmutter, Medical Student, Miller School of Medicine

I’ve seen a lot of chatter here about the role of dairy in a Grain Brain lifestyle. Is it okay? How much can we have? What about Product X?

Certainly, there is a role for dairy in the Grain Brain diet. However, that said, it is not a dairy-heavy lifestyle. Want a splash of whole milk or cream in your coffee? Go for it! A piece of organic goat cheese? That’s a-okay as well. Dairy can be enjoyed in moderation.

What you want to avoid is low-fat and skim milk/dairy products. The reason for this is that, obviously, low-fat milk has less fat in it, and more lactose sugar. It should come as no surprise to learn that sugar is a dangerous carbohydrate, now entering the body instead of healthier fats.

So, enjoy your dairy, but keep it fatty, and look for organic whenever possible.

So, remember. Dairy is great! Full fat!
