If you don’t love your yogurt maybe you should. It seems that yogurt may reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people with high blood pressure. This was the conclusion of a study of 74,000 nurses and health care professionals.. Those who reported consuming two or more servings of yogurt a week were about 20% less likely to have a heart attack or stroke than those who rarely ate yogurt. Low-fat dairy foods are an important part of the DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension Diet) which has been shown to reduce blood pressure and cardiovascular risk. The greatest risk reduction was seen in frequent yogurt eaters whose diets were closest to DASH.
