Eating Yogurt Can Reduce Risk Of High Blood Pressure

September 19, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A 15-year U.S. study of more than 2,000 volunteers who were not hypertensive at the start of the research found that yogurt-eaters were at less risk of developing high blood pressure than non-yogurt eaters. Study participants were 31 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure if at least two percent of their daily calories came from yogurt. That would amount to about one 6-oz. cup of low-fat yogurt every three days.
