“The most important takeaway from this study is that these are very early observational findings, meaning they are not to be taken as gospel,” Kristin Carlino, a registered dietitian based at Jersey City Medical Center, tells Eat This, Not That!. Carlino explains that “studies like this are meant to be a guide for future research and just one small part of a much larger conversation.” Beyond that, it’s apparently important to note that “many other factors can affect someone’s health besides the dietary factors they monitored.”

Carlino also notes that “IF high dairy consumption is found to be correlated with more cognitive decline, it doesn’t mean that it is the cause of the decline.” She offers an example, noting
