How much cholesterol in milk: Best and Worst Milks to Drink for Your Cholesterol Levels
What Is High Cholesterol? Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention
According to the CDC, both hereditary and lifestyle-related factors contribute to high cholesterol, including the following.
Having a family history of high cholesterol or heart disease also means you are more likely to have high cholesterol.
Although it is relatively rare, some people also carry a genetic condition called familial hypercholesterolemia, which causes extremely high LDL levels at a young age and, if left untreated, can lead to early-onset coronary artery disease and heart attacks. The CDC estimates that 1 million Americans, or a third of a percent of the U.S. population, have familial hypercholesterolemia.
Due to age-related metabolic changes, including how the liver removes LDL cholesterol from the blood, everyone’s risk of high cholesterol increases as they get older.
Women over 55 or who have completed menopause tend to have lower LDL cholesterol levels than men. In general, men tend to have higher HDL cholesterol levels than women.
Eating a diet high in cholesterol, saturated fat, and trans fats is known to contribute to high cholesterol levels. Most animal and full-fat dairy products, and certain oils that are solid at room temperature, contain high levels of saturated fat. In recent years, the AHA has stopped explicitly recommending against dietary cholesterol, after finding that it did not significantly correlate with heart disease risk.
Reducing the amount of saturated and trans fat in your diet is considered the best dietary change to lower your cholesterol.
Level of Physical Activity
According to the AHA, getting little to no physical activity in your everyday life can lower HDL cholesterol, which can make it difficult for your body to clear LDL cholesterol in the arteries.
Moderate to intense levels of exercise can increase HDL cholesterol levels and decrease the size of LDL cholesterol particles, making it less harmful.
Tobacco use is known to damage blood vessels and lower HDL cholesterol, which at normal levels protects against heart disease, particularly in women.
No conclusive evidence shows that smoking tobacco increases LDL cholesterol, but it does create an arterial environment that promotes fatty plaque buildup.
According to the CDC, obesity — defined as a body mass index (BMI) over 30 — is linked to higher levels of triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol. Although people considered overweight or obese using the BMI scale have an increased risk for high cholesterol, people with a lower BMI can be affected by high cholesterol as well.
Type 2 diabetes — another chronic condition sensitive to lifestyle factors, body weight, and metabolism — is also associated with lower HDL cholesterol and elevated LDL cholesterol. According to a study, the reasons for this relationship are only partially understood, but the changes in insulin metabolism and overall inflammation may be contributing factors.
People with type 1 diabetes are also more likely to have lipid profiles that contribute to heart disease, even if their levels are normal overall.
‘I Was Athletic and Fit — and Still Had High Cholesterol’
High cholesterol, or hyperlipidemia, runs in Dean Mastrojohn’s family. So when the Maywood, New Jersey, resident’s doctor encouraged him to make some lifestyle modifications to lower his risk, he took the guidance seriously.
“My doctor — the same one my parents have — kept a watchful eye on me and strongly suggested I try to lose some weight and exercise as much as possible to avoid medication,” says Mastrojohn, 47, a senior vice president at Goodfuse, a communications company in New York City. “I lost nearly 20 pounds and was exercising regularly — weight lifting, playing pickup basketball games, etc. — and was very fit.”
But after losing the recommended amount of weight to get his cholesterol in check, Mastrojohn received some surprising news: His LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglycerides had increased.
“It was right then that [my doctor] told me my condition was clearly genetic and he strongly suggested I begin taking a statin,” says Mastrojohn. “I’ll never forget it. I couldn’t believe it.”
What Causes High Cholesterol?
For anyone who’s been diagnosed with high cholesterol or advised by a doctor to lower their numbers, the information can be overwhelming.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance in the blood that is used to build healthy cells, but when levels get too high — due to poor diet and other lifestyle habits, existing medical conditions, genetics (as in Mastrojohn’s case), or a combination of these factors — the risk of heart disease increases. That’s because high cholesterol causes fatty deposits to develop in the blood vessels, and these deposits constrict blood flow to the arteries over time and may suddenly break off to form a clot, causing a heart attack or stroke.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends keeping your total cholesterol levels below 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL).
“Cholesterol is the sum total of the LDL cholesterol, HDL (“good”) cholesterol, and triglycerides, calculated by a formula,” explains Robert Greenfield, MD, a board-certified cardiologist, lipidologist, and internist at MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute at Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. “It’s important to know each component of the total cholesterol, as just knowing the total cholesterol — especially if it’s high — doesn’t tell you why it’s high, which is so important in planning a treatment strategy.”
How High Cholesterol Is Treated
Dr. Greenfield says there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treating patients with high cholesterol. “I see high cholesterol all the time and every day,” he says, and each case needs to be evaluated individually.
A cholesterol treatment plan will take into account a variety of factors, including age, lifestyle, and personal and family history. In addition to diet, exercise, and weight, your doctor will consider other habits such as smoking and alcohol use.
A heart-healthy diet and exercise plan are always part of high cholesterol treatment, says Greenfield. “But if a person is high risk, such as with a prior cardiac history or risk factors like diabetes or high blood pressure, medication should be started along with lifestyle changes,” he says.
When Lifestyle Changes Aren’t Enough to Lower Cholesterol
Mastrojohn was stunned when his doctor informed him that his cholesterol numbers didn’t reflect the effort he’d put into modifying his lifestyle. “After all that hard work, being told my condition was worse left me in shock,” he says.
He had followed the doctor’s orders to exercise as much as possible. Mastrojohn had started running and walking more and generally kept moving. “I was going to the gym regularly and had lost weight,” he explains. “I had always been athletic, from my grade-school years through college, and played multiple sports but was never terribly thin, truth be told — nor was I terribly overweight.”
Experts often cite weight as a potential risk factor for high cholesterol. The American Heart Association (AHA) says being overweight or obese can raise bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol, and a weight loss of 5 to 10 percent can help improve those numbers. But there are other contributing factors.
“It’s not only about losing weight; it is also the composition of your diet,” says Nieca Goldberg, MD, medical director of the Women’s Heart Center at NYU Langone and radio show host of Beyond the Heart on Doctor Radio SiriusXM. “A good example is the keto diet. It’s effective for weight loss, but because it’s high in saturated fat content, it can raise LDL cholesterol.”
Dr. Goldberg recommends a Mediterranean-style diet that’s low in red meat and sweets; focuses on plant-based foods; and incorporates healthy fats high in omega-3s, such as olive oil and fish.
Cholesterol-Lowering Medications: A Necessary Next Step
Since weight loss and exercise hadn’t been enough to reel in Mastrojohn’s cholesterol numbers, taking medication was the next step.
According to Greenfield, statins are the most commonly prescribed medication to treat high cholesterol and can help people who have been unsuccessful at lowering their numbers through lifestyle modifications alone.
“Although some people are afraid of medication, the medications we have today are safe, and they are lifesaving,” says Greenfield.
Medication wasn’t an instant, easy fix for Mastrojohn, but after some trial and error, he found the right drug for his health needs. “I’ve actually had to change my medications a few times, given some side effects like muscle pain, but I recently found one that hasn’t given me any issues,” he says. “The medication has had a huge impact on my cholesterol. I’m now in a normal, acceptable range.”
Walking for Good Heart Health
Ten years after starting medication, Mastrojohn is effectively managing his numbers and keeping up his healthy habits.
Greenfield agrees with this approach. “Today’s medications are so good that they may normalize [a person’s] cholesterol numbers by themselves, but good lifestyle [habits], involving a healthy diet plan, sufficient exercise, adequate sleep, and stress reduction, should always be included.” In addition to lowering cholesterol, a healthy lifestyle has many other health benefits, he adds.
Not only has Mastrojohn kept up the exercise routine his doctor suggested, but he also recently added a new walking regimen that has made a big difference in his overall health and well-being.
“I’ve been working from home since March 2020, and I knew I couldn’t just sit inside all day without moving,” he says. “My daily commute into New York City from New Jersey provided lots of exercise — walking to the office, running to catch a subway train — but the pandemic changed all of that.”
Mastrojohn set a goal to walk 5 miles a day at least four days a week, and he’s been sticking to it. “I’m usually out there for 1.5 hours during each walk, through rain, sun, snow, sleet, and hail,” he says. “It’s hard to separate the impact walking has had on my numbers versus the medication, but it’s given me so much more energy, and it definitely isn’t hurting my numbers — probably only helping!”
According to Cleveland Clinic, aerobic exercise, such as walking, raises HDL cholesterol and lowers triglycerides; combined with weight loss and a healthy diet, it can also help lower LDL cholesterol. The AHA recommends at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise most days of the week.
“Walking is a great exercise, because it’s aerobic, easy to do, and accessible. You don’t need a gym,” says Goldberg. Other options she suggests include running, swimming, and dancing.
Managing Cholesterol Is a Lifelong Process
Mastrojohn knows his cholesterol management will be a lifelong process, but it’s one he’s deeply invested in. He takes his medication regularly and has blood work done every six months to ensure his numbers remain in an acceptable range.
“I know many people are wary of having to take medications daily, as I was, but some things are out of our control, and you just have to do what you have to do,” he says. “I’m thankful that these medications exist to help prolong people’s lives.”
Mastrojohn hopes others can learn from his experience and educate themselves on how to stay healthy. “The issue with high cholesterol is that it’s not something you actually ‘feel,’ and unfortunately, some people find out they have it after it’s too late,” he says. “It doesn’t matter if you’re thin, overweight, in shape, not in shape — it can affect anyone.”
Mastrojohn knew early on to watch his cholesterol numbers because of family history, and he encourages others to do the same. “I can’t stress that enough, especially if you know that you have a family history of high cholesterol: Visit your doctor regularly, get it checked, and manage it accordingly,” he says. “And move, move, move. Don’t be sedentary! I’m not doing all of this just for me but for my family as well.”
Managing High Cholesterol and High Triglycerides
High cholesterol is an extremely common problem, affecting as many as 93 million people over age 20 in the United States (about 40 percent of adults), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But because high cholesterol has no symptoms and can only be detected with a blood test, many people may not realize they have it.
High cholesterol and its close cousin high triglycerides — another type of fat, or lipid, in your blood — can increase your risk for heart disease and stroke, which is a problem because they’re leading causes of death in the U.S., according to the American Heart Association (AHA).
“Everyone really needs to pay attention, because if they don’t have high cholesterol, they probably know someone who does,” says Partha Nandi, MD, host of the Dr. Nandi Show and chief health editor of WXYZ-TV ABC Detroit. “What’s key is that you have to get your cholesterol checked.”
During an exclusive Facebook Live event on April 19, Everyday Health teamed up with Dr. Nandi; Cate Collings, MD, president of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and director of lifestyle medicine at Silicon Valley Medical Development, in Mountain View, California; John G. Canto, MD, director of the Center for Cardiovascular Prevention, Research & Education at the Watson Clinic in Lakeland, Florida, and a consultant on the speakers’ bureaus for Amarin and other pharmaceutical companies; and guest patient David Ader, a heart attack survivor, for an informative conversation packed with helpful, actionable advice about how to take charge of your health if you have high cholesterol and high triglycerides.
What Are Your Numbers? HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and Why They Matter
Your risk for cardiovascular disease is determined by a lipid panel, which is a blood test that measures your high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or “good”) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol, and triglycerides. High cholesterol is defined as 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), according to the CDC.
When coupled with high LDL cholesterol or low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides can lead to a buildup of fat in the artery walls and increase your risk of heart attack and stroke, according to the AHA. Knowing these numbers is an important part of managing your cardiovascular disease risk.
Ader was diagnosed with high cholesterol and prescribed statins when he was in his early 30s, despite a fairly healthy lifestyle — he ran, ate healthy, and didn’t smoke — prior to diagnosis. When he was in his early 40s, Ader, who has a family history of heart disease, had angina, or chest pains that occur when your heart muscles don’t get enough oxygen-rich blood, and had to have a stent put into his heart.
He continued to stay physically active and tried to make his diet even healthier by cutting out red meat, limiting cheese, and switching to soy milk. Despite his efforts, Ader, who had a “relatively stressful job working for an investment bank,” had a heart attack when he was 49, on an international flight in the midst of an intensely busy business trip.
“When I was on statins starting in my early 30s, I knew what my overall cholesterol was, but I didn’t pay much attention to the LDL, HDL, and the triglycerides,” says Ader. “But after the first stent and the heart attack, I was paying a lot more attention to those specific levels and became very aware, much more of a self-advocate, looking at my levels and constantly monitoring to see if they changed a couple of points in one direction or the other.”
This attention to numbers is crucial to understanding your risk for cardiovascular disease, and according to Dr. Canto, the optimal levels have evolved over the years. For instance, a few decades ago, experts recommended people have LDL levels below 130 mg/dL; now, they encourage people to shoot for under 70 mg/dL — under 55 mg/dL if you have a high risk of heart disease.
“LDL cholesterol is very, very important,” says Canto. “As you bring the LDL cholesterol down, through lifestyle modification and possibly pharmacological therapy, you begin to halt the progression of atherosclerosis, [a buildup of fatty deposits called plaque in your arteries], and potentially regress the progression of plaque.”
Dr. Collings points out that LDL doesn’t necessarily have to be sky-high to pose a risk. “It is the number of years you have even mildly elevated LDL cholesterol, particularly [along with] mildly elevated or high blood pressure, that really adds up to disease risk.”
The Role of Diet in Managing Your Cholesterol
The doctors on the panel agree that a healthy eating plan, rather than a particular fad diet, can help reduce cardiovascular disease risk. “Whether it’s the Mediterranean diet; a whole-food, plant-based diet; or the DASH diet — [all of which emphasize fruits, vegetables, and whole grains while limiting saturated fats] — we know that diet makes an enormous difference,” says Collings. And, she notes, decreasing processed food is also key. She points to a study published in March 2021 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, which found that study participants — the offspring of the people in the Framingham Heart Study — who consumed as many as 7.5 servings a day of ultra-processed foods had an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Many people seem to be getting the message about heart-healthy eating. A recent Everyday Health Twitter quick poll asked people what they do to keep their heart healthy and lower their cholesterol. They found that:
- 35.5 percent said that their top tactic was to decrease processed foods
- 29 percent said their number-one move was to increase their intake of whole, plant-based food
Collings also reminds us to be wary of foods that claim to be plant-based but are really processed foods in disguise. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of eating whole foods that are full of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, such as polyphenols. She notes that a study published in November 2020 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that eating pro-inflammatory foods, such as processed foods, was associated with higher cardiovascular disease risk.
How powerful are dietary changes? At Silicon Valley Medical Development, Collings found that diet changes alone can reduce total cholesterol by as much as 20 percent and LDL cholesterol and harmful triglycerides by nearly 35 to 40 percent in as little as 30 days in the highest risk group (those who have the highest cholesterol).
The Holistic Way to Manage High Cholesterol
As important as what you eat may be, other lifestyle measures, such as exercising, reducing stress, getting plenty of sleep, and taking medication, if necessary, all play a role in your heart health.
Collings notes that even though Ader wasn’t able to prevent his heart attack by exercising, it likely helped him survive it. “The data says there’s up to a 60 percent reduction in cardiovascular mortality in folks that are regularly active,” says Collings. “Being sedentary is a risk factor.”
The AHA recommends at least 150 minutes of moderately intense exercise, such as brisk walking, jogging, or cycling, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity — or a combination of both — spread throughout the week. They also suggest at least two days per week of moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strength training with weights or resistance bands.
That said, Collings emphasizes that exercise itself has a very modest effect on reducing total cholesterol and LDL. “We can’t exercise away from high cholesterol,” she notes. “So it’s all the more reason that we really need a multi-pillar approach to lifestyle and cardiovascular disease — stress, eating, exercise, sleep, healthy relationships, and avoiding substance misuse.”
In addition to lifestyle modifications, Canto notes that there may be some individuals, such as Ader, who need medication to manage their cholesterol and triglyceride levels. “You start out with the statins, which can halt the progression of atherosclerosis,” says Canto. And today, there are therapies commonly used with statins to control LDL cholesterol and triglycerides: The first are PCSK9 inhibitors, which help reduce the amount of LDL cholesterol circulating in the bloodstream, according to Mayo Clinic. The second is a fish oil-derived prescription containing icosapent ethyl — a purified form of an omega-3 fatty acid called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) — that has been shown to be effective in reducing risk of heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular death.
“If you’re on a statin and your LDL or triglyceride levels are still not at goal, sometimes we do have to turn to pharmacological treatment if the lifestyle changes don’t come to fruition,” says Canto.*
So what are some big-picture tips for incorporating and sustaining these lifestyle changes and healthy habits? Collings, who is a health and wellness coaching advocate, notes that telling people what to do is ineffective. Instead, she says, it’s essential to identify — say, through a coaching session — what’s driving the individual’s behavior and what steps they may need to take to make a change. “It’s very important to meet people where they’re at,” says Collings. “For instance, if somebody is not sleeping well, then there may be stress in their life, and that may affect their ability to make appropriate changes in their exercise habits or how they eat.”
She notes that it may also help to break down changes into doable steps. “For instance, when we look at lifestyle change, sometimes people are very empowered to work on one initial thing, and that will segue to another behavior change in another area,” says Collings.
How to Keep Heart-Healthy Habits Going
Healthy lifestyle changes are clearly helpful in managing heart disease risk, but the doctors in our Facebook Live event all noted that it’s a lifelong process. “A lot of this seems a bit daunting,” notes Ader, but once you get into it, you realize you’re exercising and eating right for a reason. It becomes a part of your life, and you feel better for doing it.
Canto emphasizes that with the right treatment and management, people with heart disease can live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. “You can have a heart attack in your 30s and have multiple heart attacks in the course of your lifetime, have bypass surgery, have multiple stents, have your heart shocked, have a defibrillator, and then maybe later on a heart transplant, and lead a normal life with heart disease,” says Canto.
And, adds Nandi, you have the power to be your own health hero. “The most important point is that your health is in your hands,” says Nandi. “You’re not helpless.”

Skim Milk & Cholesterol | Livestrong.com

You probably already know that drinking milk adds protein and calcium to your daily diet, but skim milk, in particular, might be the best choice if you have high cholesterol or are looking for ways to keep your cholesterol in the healthy range. In addition to being rich in certain nutrients, skim milk is also fat-free, which contributes to it’s benefits in terms of cholesterol.
Skim Milk and Cholestrol
A 1-cup serving of skim milk contains 5 milligrams of cholesterol. That’s less than 2 percent of the 300 milligrams of cholesterol healthy adults should limit themselves to each day, according to the American Heart Association. For comparison, a cup of whole milk has 24 milligrams of cholesterol, which is 8 percent of your daily limit.
Why Saturated Fat Is Bad
Skim milk is a better choice than whole milk in terms of saturated fat, as well. A cup of skim milk contains no saturated fat while a cup of whole milk has about 4.5 grams. This matters when it comes to cholesterol because eating too much saturated fat can raise your cholesterol levels, according to the American Heart Association. High cholesterol levels increase your risk of heart disease, notes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The opposite is also true. Reducing saturated fat intake can help lower your cholesterol levels, and choosing skim milk over whole milk is one way to accomplish that goal.
Swapping For Skim Milk To Lower Cholesterol
Research backs up the idea that opting for skim milk over whole milk is a good idea for your overall health, including your cholesterol level. A 2010 article published in “Food and Nutrition Research” reports that replacing high fat dairy products, including milk, with lower-fat dairy foods can lower cholesterol levels. The key here is replacement, however. Simply drinking skim milk alone isn’t guaranteed to lower your cholesterol level, but reducing your saturated fat intake by switching from whole milk is more likely to help. The calcium in milk might also be useful in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, according to Stuart Patton, author of “Milk: Its Remarkable Contribution to Human Health and Well-Being.” Skim milk has slightly more calcium per serving than whole milk.
Making the Change
Whole milk and skim milk have a texture difference. Whole milk is thicker and creamier and has a more pronounced taste. Switching to skim milk can be a bit of shock because it’s thinner and has a more mild taste. Start by swapping your whole milk for 2 percent milk. Wait a week or two and then switch from 2 percent to 1 percent milk. Wait a bit longer and then switch to skim milk. This gradual change can help you adjust to the differences more easily. Even opting for 2 percent or 1 percent over whole milk, however, can help cut your saturated fat intake.

What Is Better for Adults, Whole Milk or Two Percent Milk? | Healthy Eating
By Jill Corleone Updated November 27, 2018
When it comes to milk, your taste buds may have a preference, but the desire to make better food choices may get in the way. Most of your life you’ve probably been told that it’s better for your health to drink low-fat milk. While there are benefits for choosing lower fat varieties of this classic beverage, whole milk may not be as bad as you’ve been led to believe. If you’re not sure whether you should be drinking whole or 2-percent milk, consult with a registered dietitian who can help determine which is better based on your personal health and diet needs.
Comparing the Nutrition
When deciding whether you should drink whole or 2-percent milk one of the first things to consider is the nutritional profile, comparing calories, fat and other essential nutrients. It may come as no surprise that whole milk is higher in calories and fat than 2-percent. But, the differences aren’t that great. One cup of whole milk has 150 calories and 8 grams of fat, while the same serving of 2-percent fat milk has 120 calories and 5 grams of fat. Both have the same amount of carbs and protein per cup, 12 grams and 8 grams, respectively.
Vitamin and mineral content is also similar, although 2-percent milk is a slightly better source of vitamin A and calcium. It’s important to note that some of the vitamin A in the low-fat milk is added, because when you take out the fat, you also take out some of the fat-soluble vitamins.
Milk Fat and Heart Health
The American Heart Association recommends you limit your intake of saturated fat, no more than 11 to 13 grams on a 2000-calorie diet, because it’s linked to higher cholesterol levels and heart disease. One cup of whole milk has 4.5 grams of saturated fat, and 1 cup of 2-percent milk has 3 grams of saturated fat. This is one of the primary reasons most health care professionals recommend low-fat milk over whole.
However, a 2016 prospective study published in “The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” found that intake of milk fat, whether from whole milk, low-fat milk or cheese, did not increase risk of heart disease. However, it did not decrease risk either. But the study did find that replacing animal and dairy fat with vegetable fat, nuts instead of cheese, decreased risk heart disease by 10 percent or more.
Milk Fat and Diabetes
More than 30 million Americans have diabetes , according to the American Diabetes Association, and it’s the seventh leading cause of death. Choosing whole milk over 2-percent milk may help protect you from getting this chronic illness, according to a 2016 study published in “Circulation.” This prospective study found that higher blood levels of dairy fatty acids were associated with lower risk of diabetes. While the authors of the study aren’t sure why milk fat protects against diabetes, they hypothesized that the fat may help reduce production of liver fat and improve insulin sensitivity. While this sounds promising for whole milk, clinical studies are needed to confirm the association and benefit.
90,000 Milk myths. Dangerous Milk Cholesterol | X5 Live
Debunking the conventional wisdom that milk and dairy products are useless, we in the superproject “Three dairy products a day” say: do not believe the rumors on the Internet, it is better to figure it out together with our experts , what is what. For example, if you come across this statement: milk raises the level of cholesterol in the body. And how to live now? Eliminate your favorite dairy products from your diet – or figure it out? We prefer the latter.Forward!
To begin with, there are two types of cholesterol – good and bad. The body, by the way, produces such a substance itself, and this is its necessary component. In turn, nutrition can change this indicator both up and down – both scenarios are potentially dangerous to health, this is what nutritionists say when they recommend a rational approach to what and when we eat. The amount of cholesterol in the daily diet of adults and children should not exceed 300 mg.
Useful cholesterol are high-density lipoproteins, they fight the accumulation of fats in the body and cleanse blood vessels. Dangerous cholesterol – low density lipoproteins, they work differently, they contribute to the deposition of fat and provoke the formation of blood clots on the walls of blood vessels.
Therefore, having started the fight with cholesterol, it is a good idea to figure out which lipoproteins you are fighting with and whether you are harming yourself.
The role of cholesterol in the body
Lipoproteins are found in animal products, including milk and its derivatives. 100 grams of medium fat milk (1-3.5%) contains from 3.2 to 15 mg of cholesterol, ordinary yogurt – 8 mg, 30% cream – 110 mg. But if milk and cream are added to tea and coffee, or cooked with these ingredients, it is obvious that it is impossible to get a shock dose of bad cholesterol. Of course, if the level of cholesterol in the body deviates from the norm, which can be determined exclusively by laboratory blood tests, you should heed the doctor’s recommendations.
But these are special cases, but in general cholesterol (high density lipoproteins) is responsible for a number of important processes:
is an important element in the construction of cell membranes;
– normal metabolism is impossible without it;
– it produces vitamin D;
– protects red blood cells from the effects of poisons and toxins and strengthens the immune system;
– participates in the production of bile;
– affects hormones (estrogen and testosterone).
The normal functioning of the body is directly dependent on cholesterol, therefore it is easiest to maintain its level in the blood without the risk of exceeding the permissible levels with the help of milk and its derivatives in the diet. Calories are easy to track, especially if you’re on a diet. Moreover, dairy and fermented milk products help to build a fractionally rational diet and not overeat.
What about bad cholesterol?
After all, along with a useful substance, the body also receives low-density lipoproteins.Ideally, for the normal functioning of all systems, the level of useful cholesterol in the body should exceed the content of harmful cholesterol that provokes the development of a number of diseases, including atherosclerosis.
The answer will become clear when you get acquainted with the reasons for the increase in the level of lipoproteins in the blood. The list is impressive and hits on the spot! So, these are:
– alcohol and tobacco;
– sedentary lifestyle;
– fast food and trash food;
– a small amount of water drunk per day
Of course, it is easier to blame dairy products for spoiling our lives with their cholesterol, instead of reconsidering our bad habits, finally recognizing them as harmful and change lifestyle and diet.
That in the end
Milk and milk products affect cholesterol levels, but insignificantly, especially against the background of a not rationally built lifestyle. Therefore, starting the fight against bad cholesterol, before removing really healthy dairy products from the diet, it is worth following a series of simple actions:
1) Revision your bad habits and start correcting the situation for the better.
2) Pass a biochemical blood test and find out exactly the level of your cholesterol (the norm for a conditionally healthy person does not exceed 5-7 mmol / l).
3) Obtain dietary advice from your doctor if the numbers are too high (or too low).
4) Every six months, do test analyzes for biochemistry, monitoring the level of high and low density lipoproteins, as well as their ratio.
A glass of milk contains negligible amount of fat, especially if you exclude fast carbohydrates in the form of sweets and pastries from snacks. Moreover, milk fat contains essential fatty acids for us. A causal relationship between excess weight gain and dairy products has not been found, but a number of scientific studies have shown that low-fat yogurt affects weight loss, comments doctor Yulia Chekhonina, senior researcher at the FGBUN Clinic for Nutrition and Biotechnology: “The principles of healthy nutrition require the presence of milk and its derivatives in the daily diet (three servings), because they are saturated with essential elements for life – milk protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins. “So the main thing is a rational approach to food and a healthy lifestyle!

X5 Retail Group was the first among retailers to support the program “Three dairy products a day” , which is aimed at popularizing milk among Russians. Today, the consumption of dairy products in our country is one and a half times lower than the recommended norm – 1000-1200 mg of calcium per day, which are contained in three dairy products.As a result, millions of people suffer from calcium deficiency without even knowing it.
Together with “Soyuzmoloko” we will show “milk” videos in “Pyaterochki”, “Crossroads” and “Carousels” and will offer customers additional discounts. And in the new section “Three dairy products a day” on page Fb.com/X5RetailGroup we will tell you about the benefits and, along the way, dispel myths about milk “from the store”.
Myth 1 – Long-term storage milk – unnatural and with preservatives
Myth 2 – If milk tastes bitter when souring, it means it is made from milk powder or using chemical additives
Myth 3 – Milk “from the store” contains antibiotics and is harmful to health

Why is high cholesterol dangerous? – Nyagan District Hospital
TIPS OF A CARDIOLOGIST
Why is high cholesterol dangerous?
In the modern world, about half of deaths every year are due to cardiovascular diseases, while most of them occur suddenly, as if against the background of complete health and sometimes at a young and active age. The formidable and invisible enemy that causes them is called ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Atherosclerosis is the process of plaque formation, or growth, on the vessel wall.The plaque consists of a nucleus and a teal, or surface envelope. The main component of the core is cholesterol, a fat-like substance produced by the liver. It is part of the membranes (membranes) of all cells in the body, there is a lot of cholesterol in the nervous tissue, and many hormones are formed from cholesterol. For all its internal needs, the body produces more than enough cholesterol. But a person also consumes it with food, and often in large quantities. The main source of this substance is animal products.If there are a lot of them in the diet, then the content of cholesterol in the blood increases, and it turns from a friend necessary for the body into a dangerous enemy. The fact is that excess cholesterol enters the walls of blood vessels. Initial changes in the walls of blood vessels – the first lipid stripes – appear already at the age of 20. Cholesterol continues to accumulate in the vascular wall, as a result of which connective (scar) tissue grows around its deposits. This forms an atherosclerotic plaque, which narrows the lumen of the vessel and impedes blood flow.Plaque growth continues for years and decades.
Atherosclerotic plaques are different. The most dangerous of them are malignant (unstable) ones with a large cholesterol nucleus and a thin lining. Such a lid breaks easily, the plaque opens like an abscess into the lumen of the vessel. In response to this, the body tries to close the resulting damage with a blood clot. Often, a thrombus cannot stop growing and closes, like a cork, the entire lumen of the vessel. The blood flow stops, organ tissue without oxygen and nutrients dies.If this happens in the heart, myocardial infarction develops, if in the brain, a cerebral stroke. The onset of such dangerous diseases is one – high cholesterol levels.
There are two wrong opinions about atherosclerosis about the outcome: young people believe that atherosclerosis is a disease of the elderly, and it is quite possible that it will not overtake it at all, which means that it is too early to think about prevention; older people believe that since atherosclerosis is already there, then it is useless to resist it.
In large scientific programs, examining hundreds of thousands of patients and observing them for decades, it has been proven that there are factors at any age that greatly increase the likelihood of developing diseases associated with atherosclerosis.They are called risk factors. The most dangerous of these are high blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and smoking. They are followed by obesity and diabetes. The action of one factor enhances the action of another, therefore their combination is especially dangerous. But if you reduce the level of each risk factor, for example, lower blood cholesterol levels, blood pressure, quit smoking, reduce excess weight, then the overall likelihood of developing cardiovascular diseases will decrease, and the development of atherosclerosis will slow down.This is especially true for lowering blood cholesterol levels.
The fight against atherosclerosis should begin with a change in lifestyle: move more, quit smoking, improve your diet. The basis of all diets to lower cholesterol is to reduce the consumption of fats, especially of animal origin (fatty meat, offal, butter, fatty dairy products, fatty cheeses, baked goods, etc.). Replace most of the animal fats with vegetable oils: sunflower, olive, corn.Choose only soft margarines (in jars, not packs). In moderate (limited) quantities, dairy products with a reduced fat content, hard cheeses (no more than 30% fat), lean meats, baked goods with vegetable fats or soft margarines, fried fish, fried potatoes with vegetable fats are allowed. Eggs are allowed to be eaten only boiled and not more than 2 eggs per week. Use foods with reduced fat and cholesterol in your diet more often: wholemeal bread, any cereals, pasta, low-fat dairy products, all kinds of vegetable dishes and fruits.From meat products, you should prefer chicken, turkey, veal. To increase the consumption of fish, especially sea fish, you can introduce two fish days a week or one fish dish every day. Prefer desserts without fat, without cream, without sugar, preferably fruit.
Pay special attention to the regular consumption of foods that lower cholesterol levels in the body and increase its excretion. They contain soluble fiber (pectin, pssellim, gluten) and form a jelly-like mass when cooked.These are oatmeal (rolled oats), apples, plums, various berries. Eat legumes (beans, peas) regularly. For cooking, use stewing, boiling, baking, microwave oven, cookware with a special coating that does not require the use of fat. Careful adherence to such a diet can reduce cholesterol by 10-12%.
Cardiologists all over the world are of the opinion that every person over 20 years old should know their cholesterol level, that is, do the necessary blood test.Normal blood cholesterol levels are less than 5.2 mmol / L (or 200 mg / dL). If cholesterol is elevated, it is dangerous as a factor contributing to the development of atherosclerosis and severe cardiovascular diseases.
Breastfeeding is the health of your baby.
Sonny fell asleep, trusting and tender
With my cheek pressed against my mother’s chest,
And we fly like in endless space,
Like two stars in the milky way
At the beginning of life, what is needed for the crumbs
To be with your beloved mother, and it’s so easy
Always ready, tasty, close, close,
An invaluable gift is breast milk.
Sleep, my angel, and let you dream
Seas and mountains, stars, clouds
You can’t stay small forever
You will become strong, brave, but for now
The Milky Way will give us serenity
Let every little one be familiar with him
And he will be nourished with a gentle smile
Wonderful mother’s milk!
Throughout the history of mankind, breastfeeding of newborns has ensured the child’s survival and health.The rapid development of science, the involvement of women in public life, the early exit of a nursing mother to work led to the creation of a whole new industry, the “technology” of artificial feeding. The basis was a quantitative approach, the main indicator of nutritional adequacy was an increase in body weight and the amount of food consumed. If the child did not add enough body weight and did not suck the prescribed amount of milk during feeding strictly regulated by the clock, hypogalactia was diagnosed and supplementary feeding from a bottle was prescribed.We replaced breast milk with cow’s milk (all milk formulas are based on cow’s or goat’s milk), replaced the mother’s breast with nipples and pacifiers. This approach was ubiquitous. The number of women breastfeeding has been steadily declining. Recent studies have convincingly shown that impaired health of the child population – an increase in allergic, gastroenterological and nephrological problems, a decrease in the level of physical and mental development, is directly related to an increase in the number of children who are bottle-fed.Fortunately for babies, moms are returning to nature’s evolutionary way of feeding – baby-centered feeding. For the full development and formation of health in children, breastfeeding is necessary. The child’s right to breastfeeding has been declared and enshrined in the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
Breastfeeding is the best way to keep your baby healthy for years to come.
Today, the physiology of babies and their mysterious baby soul are increasingly attracting the attention of psychologists, doctors and other specialists.It was possible to identify and describe the needs of the little man. They are conventionally divided into physiological and mental: the need for physical contact with the mother, the need for warmth, satiety, comfort, safety, in constant care and love, deep emotional contact with the mother, the need for a variety of sensations and impressions. Moreover, the younger the child, the more needs are satisfied by sucking mother’s milk. Ideally, the baby should not cry at all – after all, the mother has a breast to suck on and hands to comfort and eliminate the cause of the discomfort.The composition of milk contains more than 400 components that guarantee the normal development of the child’s body, and the opportunity to receive it gives a timely response to ANY need of the baby: to drink, eat, fall asleep, calm down and be comforted, digest a lot of milk, release gas, normalize the intestinal microflora, recover, provide active work of the growing brain, regulate the activity of the nervous system and much more! This is how unlimited the dependence of the health and development of the baby on receiving the necessary portion of milk on time to meet his urgent needs is.
How exactly do babies ask for breasts? Don’t expect demanding crying to live up to the name “on demand”. Offer breast at FIRST signs of anxiety. This is usually enough to prevent crumbling upset. The newborn shows a desire to receive mother’s milk, opening his mouth wide, twisting his head in search of a nipple, grunting, whimpering, trying to suck on a fist or the edge of clothing. An older baby can already express himself more specifically: with gestures, movements, interjections, words.
The general rule of thumb for on-demand feeding is to attach the baby to the breast in response to any discomfort. And then it will become clear what exactly he wanted – to quench his thirst or hunger, fall asleep, pee, change position, warm up. Or he just got bored alone. The baby calmed down, the mother eliminated the cause of the discomfort – and you can live calmly and cheerfully!
The very concept of “feeding on demand” excludes the possibility of replacing the breast with a pacifier or bottle.If the mother uses these items, then it is true to say that the mother feeds according to the regime, introducing restrictions on the baby’s access to the breast.
One of the reasons that disrupt the physiology of breastfeeding is the late initiation of breastfeeding. Many mothers think that on the first day she has no milk and the baby is crying from hunger. Meanwhile, the volume of a newborn’s stomach is only 2.0 ml. And those droplets of colostrum are enough so that the child does not feel hunger. If a child immediately after birth would need large volumes of fluid, then nature would arrange a woman so that she would be filled with colostrum immediately after childbirth.And in the first hours of life, a child may be worried simply because he was born, and childbirth for a baby is the most intense stress in life. Therefore, he is looking for a mother, sucking on the breast and the closeness of the mother soothe the child and he feels that he is loved and not alone in this big world.
It is very important that the baby gets colostrum. Colostrum contains more protein than mature milk. All factors of immunity, as well as leukocytes of colostrum, provide the first protection of the child and prevent infectious and inflammatory diseases.Colostrum has a mild laxative effect, as a result of which the child’s intestines are cleared of meconium (original feces), which reduces the duration of physiological jaundice. Colostrum contains a lot of vitamin A. It contains bifidobacteria, immunoglobulin A (coats the intestinal mucosa) necessary for the formation of a normal biocenosis in the intestine. Given the unique composition of colostrum, it is very important that the child receives it from the first hours of life. That is why in the neonatology department we apply the baby to the mother’s breast while still in the delivery room.
On the first day, the child needs a fairly frequent attachment to the breast. That is why the mother and the child are not separated until the very moment they are discharged home.
The only stimulant of lactation is the sucking of the breast by the baby. It is necessary to attach the baby to the breast as often as he asks, especially in the 1st month of life during the period of mutual adaptation of the mother and child. The baby of the first months of life does not separate his personality from the personality of the mother and from her breast. Mom and her breasts, and everything connected with them, are the baby’s universe and himself.
How long can a baby spend at the breast?
In solving this issue, also focus on the needs of the baby. With natural breastfeeding, the duration of attachment can vary from a second to an hour, depending on the task that the baby faces.
• Short attachments are associated with a feeling of thirst (after all, breast milk is about 90% water), with the need to get energy in case of fatigue, with the need to ensure the normal functioning of the nervous system during overload (on a walk, in a stressful situation, pain and fright) and to support the level of glucose in the blood, which is necessary for the full functioning of the brain.They help the baby to get substances from the front milk, which, with longer sucking, changes its composition, becoming fatty and high-calorie.
• long feedings (starting from 10 minutes and more) help the baby to solve the problems of growth and weight gain, brain growth and development of the gastrointestinal tract, normalize digestion processes and ensure the formation of immunity. Children can suck for a long time during the first weeks, when falling asleep, with an illness, teething, in the presence of psychological discomfort, with difficulties in establishing emotional contact with the mother.Especially for a long time, babies suck in the morning – at this time, the mother’s body actively produces the hormone prolactin, which is responsible for a sufficient amount of milk.
Do not collect the breast before the baby CAM releases it. Otherwise, he risks receiving less of something important from your milk, and the breast will not receive a “request” to develop a new portion of precious nutrition.
Have patience, choose a comfortable feeding position, take care not to get bored during these minutes (knit, listen to music, read, take a nap), and feed! As long as the crumb requires.Of course, there are exceptions: you need to open the door, move somewhere, do something … But these should be exceptions, not regular practice.
The duration of feeding should be determined by the child himself, and not by the minutes. I suggest to all mothers reading this text – do not count attachments, do not notice their duration. Encourage your child as often as he asks. When he is full, the baby will “break away” from the breast or stop sucking. The shape and size of the mammary glands and nipple, as well as the features of its structure, do not determine the amount of milk and the possibility of breastfeeding.
When the baby is breastfeeding, sensory impulses travel from the nipples to the mammary glands. In response, the anterior pituitary gland produces a hormone called prolactin. Prolactin enters the bloodstream of the mammary glands and stimulates the mammary secretory glands, which produce milk. Thus, the more the baby suckles at the breast, the more milk is produced in the mammary glands. More prolactin is produced at night, therefore, breastfeeding at night is especially beneficial for maintaining milk production.
How often do you need breast milk? The younger the child, the more of his needs are met by the composition of the milk. For example, for a monthly baby, a new portion of food helps to comfortably empty the intestines or get rid of the accumulation of gas, and a 5-6-month-old baby will cope with this without sucking. The grown-up toddler, if he wants to caress his mother, will climb into her arms and hug her, and the baby knows one way to gain deep and tender unity – to suck on her mother’s breast.The smaller the baby, the more often he asks for breast, even 10-15 minutes after the previous feeding! The baby’s gastrointestinal tract is designed for round-the-clock intake of breast milk. The stomach itself rests almost all the time ”and does not participate in the digestion of milk – the intestines are engaged in this. Therefore, feed your baby often during the day and – which is especially important for the production of a sufficient amount of milk – no less than 3 times a night.
Usually a child of the first year of life needs up to 15-20 applications per day.After a year, their number can be reduced to 8-12. The baby, ready for weaning, sucks only 1-2 times a day.
Is long sucking harmful to the breast?
One of the most important concepts in organizing successful breastfeeding is CORRECT APPLICATION. The infant should capture the entire brown areola, the areola, as deeply as possible. The radius of capture of the areola is 2 -3 cm from the base of the nipple. The nipple itself is located deep in the mouth of the baby, without risking injury.
The main criteria for correct attachment:
– no soreness of the breast in the mother;
– certain external signs: at the time of sucking, the areola is practically invisible, the lips of the crumbs are turned outward, ensuring the tightness of the attachment (and no air entering the baby’s stomach), the chin is pressed to the chest, and the cheeks and nose touch it.
Correct attachment protects the nipples from injury, and thanks to the effect of high-quality breast emptying, it prevents milk stagnation and mastitis.Try to teach the baby to suckle the breast correctly as soon as possible! If it doesn’t work out, use the help of consultants.
Only the composition of breast milk and the peculiarities of the infant’s digestive system are a harmonious mechanism for the formation of a high-quality biocenosis – and a healthy intestine is a healthy person!
How much energy a crumb needs for growth and physical activity. Food sources of energy are fats, carbohydrates and proteins. According to the criterion of value, proteins of human milk have the highest score.Breast milk contains mainly whey proteins, l-lactoalbumin and lactoferrin are present in large quantities, which are sources of all essential amino acids (cow’s milk contains b-lactoglobulin, which causes a negative antigenic reaction and has an allergenic property). In children of the first months of life, gastric juice has low acidity and enzyme activity – but there are enough of them for the digestion of breast milk proteins.
Fats should provide an infant not only with energy, but also with essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K.It is fats that shape the intelligence of a child. The ability of infants to synthesize many fatty acids is limited. But nature has provided for the fact that these acids are present in sufficient quantities in breast milk. Most artificial mixtures do not contain docosahexaenoic acid and, thus, the body uses other fatty acids to build phospholipids in the nerve cells of the brain, which can affect the level of mental and intellectual development of the child.
All carbohydrates are absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract as monosaccharides (primarily glucose).Glucose is an irreplaceable source of energy for the nervous tissue, the cells of which are unable to use fats as an energy source. Oligosaccharides determine the bifidogenic properties of breast milk.
It has long been known that human milk can provide the maximum and all-round protection of the infant from possible infections. Breast milk contains all classes of immunoglobulins – A, M, O, E. Secretory Ig A (high in colostrum) protects the intestinal epithelium from antigens in the intestinal cavity and actively stimulates the child’s immune system.Lymphocytes and macrophages – play an important role in the development of antibacterial immunity in newborns. Lysozyme has bacteriostatic properties due to enzymatic destruction of cell membranes of microbial cells. Thus, secretory Ig A, lactoferrin, lysozyme form a powerful bacteriolytic system of human milk. With the mother’s milk, all protective antibodies are transferred to the child, protecting against the implementation of specific infections. These substances are absent in mixtures and animal milk.
Breast milk contains specific hormones that contribute to more intense psychomotor and emotional development.Breastfeeding promotes greater neurological stability, communication skills, and the development of children’s memory.
The correct bite, which forms when the nipple is covered, reduces the incidence of dental problems in early childhood, and reduces the incidence of caries.
The psychological benefits of breastfeeding:
Breastfeeding creates a close emotional bond with the mother, which lasts for many years, creates a sense of closeness and security in the child.A nursing woman evokes the special tenderness of a loving man, paints the feeling of love in new bright colors, creates that specific climate in the family when a man fully begins to feel his role as a protector of two inextricably linked and important people for him – mother and child!
The baby, feeling the native smell of the mother’s breast, develops a deeper and more restful sleep. A decrease in the frequency and severity of “intestinal colic” in breastfed children is associated with a more rapid development of microbiocenosis, maturation of enzymes of the gastrointestinal tract, the formation of correct peristalsis against the background of calm and prolonged sucking.
The concept of “intestinal colic” is the condition of a child during the first 3 months of life. In newborns, the phenomenon is physiological and is associated with the immaturity of the regulation of motility and the immaturity of the enzyme system, which leads to an increase in gas production and “distention” of the intestine. In this regard, they can occur both during breastfeeding and when using formulas. However, only breastfeeding can significantly reduce and alleviate the severity of pain in colic, due to the greater ease of digestion and less gas formation.Many believe that “intestinal colic” is associated with intestinal dysbiosis or transient lactase deficiency. In a child of the first months of life, it is hardly possible at all to talk about dysbiosis, since during this period the microbiocenosis is still only forming. Breast milk has a high content of oligosaccharides, which are the most valuable probiotic factor contributing to the formation of bifidoflora. Its suppression (use of phages, an abundance of biological products containing bifidobacteria) can contribute to the acquisition of dysbiosis.Thus, the study of feces for dysbiosis in children of the first months of life is not an informative method, since, on the one hand, changes will be found in the analysis, on the other hand, the treatment of these changes can only lead to a deterioration in the formation of microbiocenosis.
But what about pumping?
If you have organized feeding your baby naturally, there is no need to express. The mammary gland, responding to the “requests” and “demands” from the child, produce as much milk as he needs.Frequent sucking with the correct grip of the breast will insure against stagnation that occurs during feeding according to the regime scheme – when each breast is “idle” for 6-8 hours, waiting for its turn.
It is necessary to strain only if the mother is separated from the baby, or works outside the home. In such cases, it is possible to create a “own milk bank”. (Frozen milk in sachets can be stored for up to 6 months. Expressed milk can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. At room temperature, up to 12 hours)
How to do everything if you often give your baby breast?
To establish a life with a newborn, a young mother needs help with the housework.The basic principle after childbirth: the mother takes care of the child, and the people around take care of the mother. Most of the household issues can be solved without the participation of a nursing mother. It’s not so difficult to shift it to the household to do the washing in the car, prepare quick – frozen food, go shopping and keep the house clean. Moreover, everyone is interested in the baby growing up healthy, calm, not crying and not being capricious. For this it is worth, while the baby is small, spend most of the time on feeding – knowing that in the future the situation will change, the need for milk will be less and the mother will have more time.Many are helped by the use of a sling sling for carrying children, which allows, without lifting the baby from the breast, to do simple household chores, freely moving around the apartment and outside.
Breast age of babies up to 2.5 years and more (and not up to 1 year as previously thought).
In the second year of life, the baby receives fats from the mother’s milk, which are the main source of energy for the baby, all the immune cells that protect against seasonal infections and form a healthy immunity in your baby.The modern breastfeeding woman faces a lot of misinformation about breastfeeding, negative social pressures and many other factors that undermine her decision and desire to breastfeed. And if the mother still, in spite of everything, continues to feed the child with her milk even after a year, she has to listen to all kinds of “horror stories” about the dangers of breastfeeding “big” children.
This negative attitude is a direct legacy of the 20th century. A hundred years ago, no one was surprised that children receive their mother’s milk until 2-3 years old.Our great-grandmothers remember that the lactation process is the best contraceptive (the hormone prolactin, which is responsible for milk production, suppresses ovulation). But from the 3O-40s of the XX century, when the ideal of a woman became not a devoted wife and mother, but a shock worker of the labor front, opportunities to feed a baby for a long time became less and less. In the middle of the last century, maternity leave was 1 month. The consequence of the lack of breastfeeding was the deterioration of the health of the younger generation. Health not only physical, but also mental; children who did not know their mother’s breast are more susceptible to depression, behavior problems in adolescence and difficulties in establishing family life.That is why the World Health Organization has begun to pay close attention to breastfeeding issues. Numerous studies on the composition of human milk have been carried out, materials have been collected on the influence of breastfeeding on the development of a child, manuals for health workers, brochures for mothers have been written. Together with UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund), the “10 Steps for Success” was developed and launched.
The words that after a year there is nothing useful in human milk is a myth.
The fat content of breast milk after a year of feeding increases 2-3 times.
The number of antibodies constantly increases with the growth of the child, as does the content of immunoglobulin A.
The level of substances responsible for the ripening of the gastrointestinal tract of the crumbs rises. In the second year of life, 448 ml of breast milk provides energy needs – by 29%, in protein – by 43%. in calcium – by 36%, and the need for vitamin A – by 75%. Requirements for folate (folic acid derivatives) are met by 76%, vitamin B12 by 94%, and vitamin C by 60%.Other evidence suggests the effect of longevity on IQ, with the greatest gains in children who were fed the longest. A relationship was found between the duration of feeding and successful social adaptation at the age of 6-8, when the baby goes to school. Babies older than a year are less likely to suffer from allergic diseases. Their immunity is more stable, and in case of illness, the recovery period is shorter than that of their peers who do not receive their mother’s milk.
Reasons for a decrease in lactation:
- Baby is late attached to the breast (this is why the first attachment in the first hour after birth is important).
- violation of the technique of attachment to the chest. The sucking mechanism changes if the baby is taught to suck from the nipple. And the point is not in the “easier” sucking, but in the technique of the relative position of the tongue, the coverage of the lips and the inclusion of muscle groups of the bottom of the oral cavity, cheeks and perioral region, as well as the combination of the reflexes of sucking and swallowing. If the baby technically begins to suckle the breast like a nipple, then this leads to the release of small portions of “front” milk, stagnation of milk in the ducts, which can lead to lactostasis, as well as the formation of nipple cracks.In the latter case, the pain syndrome slows down both the synthesis of milk and its outflow from the ducts of the mammary glands.
- infrequent and short feedings. With effective breastfeeding, the baby gets all the milk he needs and does not require frequent (erratic) feeds, even if the intervals between feeds are irregular. If he requires feedings more often than 1 hour later, it is most likely that he is not properly applied to the breast, or the duration of feedings is so short that he cannot suck off enough milk.
- no night feedings. The greatest secretion of prolactin occurs at night (prolactin is a hormone that stimulates milk production in the alveoli)
- the use of items imitating breasts (nipples and pacifiers). Sucking on the mother’s breast is an inborn reflex. A child is not designed by nature to suck on anything other than the breast. And they are always accustomed to a dummy. This distorts the natural mechanisms of breast sucking. The experience of “nipple” sucking is formed. And always a dummy is given in return for communication with the child.Nipple sucking can change the bite and affect speech development. The likelihood of breast abandonment increases. When sucking on the breast, the child uses the tongue, which is important for the development of speech, receives more attention from the mother, which affects the psychoemotional development of the child.
- supplementing and supplementary feeding. Child up to 6 months. no other food or drink is needed besides breast milk. If the baby needs it, offer him the breast, milk will be produced for any sucking of the baby.

90,000 Top foods that improve cholesterol levels.
Nutrition plays an important role in lowering cholesterol levels. By changing your menu, you can achieve normalization of cholesterol levels by 10-15%. However, fasting is undesirable, since then the liver begins to synthesize even more cholesterol.On a zero-cholesterol diet, eating only lettuce, vegetables and fruits, a person is not getting all the nutrients they need, which leads to negative effects on the immune system.
To improve cholesterol levels, it is important to reduce the amount of saturated fat and trans fatty acids in your diet, and choose foods that help lower cholesterol and protect your heart. Check out the top foods to include in your meals.
Top Foods That Will Improve Cholesterol
Oatmeal and Fiber-Rich Foods
Oatmeal contains soluble fiber that lowers low-density (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol levels in the blood. You need to get 10 or more grams of soluble fiber per day. After eating a cup and a half of oatmeal, your body will already have 6 g of fiber. Bran, barley, apples, pears, carrots, plums and beans also contain large amounts of soluble fiber.
Fish and Omega-3
Fish is good for the heart because it contains a lot of Omega-3 fatty acids, which lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Eat fish at least twice a week. Sardines, mackerel, herring, salmon, brown trout, halibut and tuna are the most Omega-3s.
Eat fish oil, but it will not provide other important nutrients found in fish, such as selenium.
Walnuts, almonds and other nuts
Nuts are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which have a beneficial effect on heart and cardiovascular health and lower cholesterol levels.A handful of different nuts should be eaten per day – almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, pine nuts. Just make sure the nuts are not salted, roasted, or coated with sugar. Nuts are a healthy and delicious alternative to toast, cheese, or meat in salads.
Avocados are a source of very valuable nutrients as well as monounsaturated fatty acids. Recent studies have shown that eating one avocado per day can help improve low-density cholesterol levels in overweight or obese people.Add avocados to salads, sandwiches, or serve as a side dish.
Another valuable source of monounsaturated fatty acids. 2 tablespoons of olive oil a day can help improve heart health. In olive oil, you can fry, stew, add it to marinades. Instead of mayonnaise or fatty sauces, add some good olive oil to the salad. Avocados and olive oil are high in calories, so don’t go over the RDA.
Studies have shown that whey protein obtained in the form of a dietary supplement reduces both low-density and total cholesterol levels.
To IMPROVE cholesterol levels, it is important to reduce your intake of saturated fat and fatty acids!
SATURATED FAT – Meat, butter, sour cream, cheese and other fatty dairy products and some oils increase cholesterol levels.
TRANS FATTY ACIDS are especially harmful to your cholesterol levels because they raise low-density or so-called “bad” cholesterol and decrease high-density or “good” cholesterol.They are found in store-bought cookies, waffles, crackers, cakes, buns, fried foods, margarine, ice cream.
To avoid trans fatty acids, always read the ingredients before buying. If you see the word hydrogenated vegetable oil, then the product contains trans fatty acids.

90,000 Notes for peasants
Official opinion of the Siberian State Medical University on the benefits of goat’s milk and cheese
Milk and dairy products are irreplaceable in human nutrition, used at all periods of life, but especially in childhood and old age.I.P. Pavlov called milk food prepared by nature itself, because it contains food and biologically active substances in an optimally balanced state. In addition, the value of milk lies in its easy digestibility and high utilization for the needs of the body. Milk slightly stimulates the secretion of the digestive glands, therefore it is recommended in medical and dietary nutrition.
In world practice, in the production of baby and medical food products, there is a tendency to replace cow’s milk with goat’s.At the modern evidence level, the high biological value of goat milk, its similarity with cow’s milk, has been confirmed, however, the advantages of goat’s milk in comparison with cow’s milk are better absorption of ingredients in the digestive tract (goat’s milk is absorbed by 97%, cow’s milk – by 65%), due to the characteristics of the main ingredients , as well as hypoallargensis
Cow’s milk casein contains allergenic lS-a-casein, which is not present in goat’s milk, as well as an active allergen (3-lactoglobulin
Goat milk protein contains more essential amino acids (valine, leucine, isoleucine, cystine, methionine), the content of taurine sulfonic acid is 20-40 times higher. Taurine forms conjugates with bile acids in the liver, which are part of the bile and contribute to the emulsification of fats in the intestine.It was found that taurine plays the role of a neurotransmitter amino acid that inhibits synaptic transmission, has anticonvulsant activity of
The clot formed in the stomach from goat’s milk, even in comparison with that from human milk, is smaller, less dense, which facilitates its interaction with enzymes.
Goat milk fat contains more essential fatty acids (linoleic, linolenic). Goat milk does not contain agglutinins, which contribute to the adhesion of fat particles to each other. Fat globules of goat’s milk are 10-15 times smaller in size compared to those of cow’s milk, and therefore their surface, available for digestion by pancreatic lipases, increases, therefore, the digestibility of goat’s milk fat increases. Goat milk fat contains short- and medium-chain fatty acids, which are absorbed in the intestine without the participation of bile acids.Good fat absorption is important not only for maintaining energy balance, but also for calcium absorption.
The micronutrient composition of goat milk is more favorable for the body in comparison with cow’s milk: the content of vitamins is higher: A 2.5 times, C – 1.5 times, PP – 3 times, D, B6, Bp, C, PP, as well as minerals – calcium by 13%, phosphorus, potassium by 1.5 times, copper by 4 times, selenium by 30%. The role of potassium is especially great in the functioning of the cardiovascular system
Goat milk as an alternative to cow’s milk for artificial feeding of children of the first year of life is indicated for low-birth-weight newborns, children with malabsorption, pancreatic cystofibrosis, and cholestasis.
Food products for children of the first year of life, prepared on the basis of goat milk, have a positive effect on the digestive ability of the digestive system, reduce functional disorders (regurgitation, colic, flatulence, constipation), are shown in the rehabilitation period after infectious diseases.Lysozyme in goat milk proteins gives it bactericidal properties, helps to normalize the intestinal microflora.
The effectiveness of the use of specialized
The use of products made on the basis of goat milk by children with chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract
Goat milk has an anti-sclerotic effect
Polyunsaturated fatty acids of goat milk have a therapeutic and prophylactic effect: they optimize the ratio of fat and lean body mass, which is important for the prevention of obesity and reducing the risk of atherosclerosis progression.
Rennet and soft cheeses, feta cheese, which are concentrates of protein, milk fat, as well as calcium and phosphorus, are made from goat’s milk.The content of these nutrients in cheese is 3-5 times higher than in goat milk.
Based on the above, a conclusion should be drawn about the usefulness of the use of goat milk and its processing products in the diet of children and persons of older age groups for the prevention and treatment of widespread allergic diseases, digestive disorders and metabolic processes.
