Milk cuts chance of strokes.
Diets rich in calcium, including dairy products, can cut the chance of dying from a stroke by as much as 60 per cent, they said.
Experts from the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia and the University of Bristol examined results from a 1930s study into the diets of mainly working-class families in Britain.
The children were aged eight on average when the study began, and 4,374 of them were traced and followed up 65 years later.
The researchers analysed the calcium content of their diets in the original study and found that those with the highest calcium intakes - mainly from drinking milk - had the lowest risk of dying from strokes.
