Organic milk may be more heart healthy, research suggests

Posted: Updated:

(WECT) - News research suggests organic whole milk may be more heart-healthy than conventional milk.

According to research, organic whole milk contains more Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to heart-healthy benefits compared to conventional milk.

The organic version also has fewer Omega-6 fatty acids, which have been tied to inflammation and diabetes.

The overall fatty acid levels are lowest in skim milk, which is the recommended variety.
