Milk Myth: I should avoid milk
if I'm worried about high blood pres
sure. Truth: Getting enough calcium
may actually help reduce high blood
pressure, not increase it. High blood
pressure affects about one in four
people and can increase the risk of
strokes and heart attacks. Calcium
may be especially helpful for flood
pressure in people with diabetes and
obesity, especially if weight is stored
mostly in the stomach area.
Milk Myth: Fat free skim milk
has less calcium and other nutrients
than whole milk.
Truth: Fat free skim and one
percent lowfat milk provide the same
nutrients as whole milk, but with
little or no fat, and fewer calories. A
glass of whole milk contains 300 mg
calcium; a glass of skim milk con
tains 302 mg calcium.
