Because in studies of nutrition is increasingly clear that no matter the fat itself, both its origin, in determining its health effects. The latest evidence on this line indicates that the consumption of milk, rich in animal fats, can have protective effects against type 2 diabetes.

It is not the first time that a study, for example, points out the benefits of yogurt against this disease, but on this occasion, the advantages are extrapolated to other types of milk.

The results come from extensive Swedish research that has been unveiled at the annual meeting of the European society for the study of Diabetes that is taking place in Vienna (Austria). With data from nearly 27,000 individuals from 45 to 74 years, followed for 14 years, the team of Ulrika Ericson

That is the conclusion we could go that according to an article published in the journal 'Practical Neurology', which ensures that the vitamin D that contains milk increases brain activity. They endorse his desmotrando thesis that countries that consume more dairy products accumulate highest number of award-winning a Nobel.

Research published last year in the journal of 'New England of Medicine' recorded a strong association between the consumption of chocolate of a nation and the obtaining of the Nobel Prize, speculating that the content of flavonoids in chocolate was behind the increase in brain capacity.

The authors thought that as the chocolate is often combined with milk, it could be the amount of dairy products that are consumed per capita related to success in these awards.
Thus, the Organization 2007 data were analyzed for food and agriculture in the per capita consumption of milk in 22 countries, as well as the information provided by the author of the theory of chocolate and a significant association was found.

Sweden is the country more Nobel prizes, with 33 among its 10 million inhabitants, and although some might argue that it is logical because it is home to the Organising Committee of the awards, is that it is both the country where the largest quantity of milk is consumed per head of the population, with 340 kg each year. The second, Switzerland, with 32 Awards, records an intake of 300 kg milk per year.

At the other end of the scale, China has the lowest number of Nobel Laureates in its population, as well as lower consumption of milk of the countries studied, with around 25 kg per year. According to the researchers, there is a plausible biological explanation for all this: the milk is rich in vitamin D, which can increase the power of the brain.

"So that to improve their chances of winning Nobel prizes not only must eat more chocolate, but perhaps also drink enough milk," conclude the authors, from the Department of Neurology of the Gloucester Royal Hospital, in United Kingdom, which highlight the conflicts of interest, including a tendency to drink milk with cereals and coffee and eat chocolate whenever the opportunity arises

Cows farm Arpon, a pioneer cattle industry both in the care and well-being of their animals

There are cows at livestock farms of Madrid who sleep in beds, receive massages and listen to classical music when they are milked three times a day.

«The dairy sector in the community of Madrid has been subjected to an intense process of restructuring, in such a way that innovation has become the unique formula of survival. The regional government works to make farms leading and highly specialized, both on-site and in the application of new technologies, breeding and animal health», said the counselor.

The Madrid Executive has allocated a total of 1.1 million euros in aid for the modernization of the dairy industry since 2007.

It occupies the ninth position in the agri-food sector Madrid by number of establishments and the fourth with respect to the number of occupied persons (1.639 workers).
