[Comment] No need to change dairy food dietary guidelines yet

The role of dairy products in the development of cardiovascular disease and mortality has been the focus of several epidemiological studies and meta-analyses.1–6 Although a trend towards a protective effect is generally observed, the association between dairy consumption and cardiovascular disease is still inconclusive.
