Excellent article Bekajoi, with surprisingly accurate information!<br><br><br><br>
The only part of the story they didn't really get is that taking some of the fat out of dairy might fix the cholesterol problem/heart disease problem, but it still leaves the issue of cancer risk wide open. By making dairy products lower in fat, they end up being higher in protein. The percentage of total calories from protein becomes very high, and its the milk protein (casein) which has been implicated as a promoter of cancer. In the Harvard Nurses Health Study, women who drank non-fat milk were actually more likely to develop breast cancer than those who drank full-fat milk, and it has been postulated that it isn't the fat in the dairy products, but the casein that was responsible for the higher rate of breast cancer. Prostate Cancer and Breast Cancer are both very hormone sensitive cancers, and milk is basically a hormone delivery system.

Great article! The only annoying part is at the very end:<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">So do you have to give up pizza, grilled-cheese sandwiches, ice cream, yogurt and chocolate milk? Probably not. Most populations, even if they dont drink milk, have developed fermented milk foods such as yogurts and cheeses, so its not like dairy is a completely new food source. If you have problems digesting milk productsand this can worsen with ageyou can find substitutes or use Lactaid.</div>
</div>

It's like, here's all the reasons dairy is bad for you, and you don't need dairy - BUT -- of course you don't have to give it up! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
Otherwise, though, I love the article!

There was nothing about alternative types of milk, either. I've become addicted to soy milk, more because I'm lactose intolerant than for animal rights reasons, but I'm ok with multi-purpose dietary changes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

That was well put, and made me laugh! Actually though I think the article focuses more on why you don't need dairy, and how its not some real natural food that we need to have (which is what the dairy industry has basically brainwashed the populace to think). It doesn't really get too deeply into why dairy is bad for you, rather it concludes that since its not a new food in our diet, and everybody eats it anyway, that maybe it won't kill of the population after all. Not the greatest logic, but I guess it would be a stretch for MSN to suggest that we might be a whole lot healthier if we did something other than follow the status quo.

Cool. I sent it to my mom, who's a Swede, and therefore a consumer of large amounts of dairy but also concerned about that belly of hers. I've been trying to tell her that if she just reduced or eliminated dairy from her diet that she would get all sorts of benefits from it. But old habits die hard. She's closing in on the big seven-oh.

I love that they were giving you the facts about how dairy is not as good for you as the gov't and the dairy companies are making it out to be. however, i wish that the ending could have been a little different. They could even keep the part about still eating all the ****, but they could add that there are many non dairy options out there as well.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/idea2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":idea:">

That's how I read it... That you don't have to give UP Pizza and all of that if you really like it. Just find alternatives, or if a suitable drinking milk is not available, Lactaid is an option. (still milk, but it looks like a last resort option to me)
