These findings are in broad agreement with the recently reported outcome of a remarkable 61-year follow up of the Boyd-Orr cohort study. This study involved the recruitment of 4,999 children in England and Scotland in 1937-39 with causes of death recorded from 1948. This study showed that a family diet in childhood, which was high in dairy products, did not give rise to a greater risk of heart disease or stroke mortality. Indeed all-cause mortality was lowest in those with the highest dairy/milk intake.
