Why drinking just one milkshake is bad for your health, according to new study

Having just one high-fat milkshake can “set the stage” for heart disease, according to a new study published in the journal Laboratory Investigation. They took blood samples before serving them a milkshake made with whole milk, heavy whipping cream, and ice cream. It had 80 grams of fat and 1,000 calories. Four hours later, the researchers once again took blood tests and other vitals, and found that consuming the milkshake had transformed the men's healthy red blood cells into small, spiky cells that “wreak havoc inside our blood vessels and help set the perfect stage for cardiovascular disease.”
