It's no secret that full-fat dairy products contain more calories than low-fat dairy products, and this is the main reason why low-fat dairy has been recommended for so long as the best option for milk drinkers. 

But recent research is indicating that full-fat dairy may have a solid place in a healthy diet, and the research is strong enough that nutrition leaders and major news outlets are noticing!
