Yogurt may help your heart.

New research on adults with high blood pressure found that eating more yogurt was associated with a significantly lower risk of heart attacks. Over the course of 30 years, women who ate more than two servings of yogurt a week had a 30 percent lower risk of having a heart attack, and men had a 19 percent lower risk. As a population study, this research doesn’t prove that the yogurt led to the heart benefits (it may be they ate fewer carbs and snacks for breakfast and snacks). But clinical research on animals also suggests that the beneficial bacteria found in yogurt (along with other fermented foods and probiotic supplements) lowers your risk of heart attacks.
