Did you know that strawberry milk, processed cheese, and ice cream is a food group according to the USDA?

http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/dairy.html

and:

Quote:
-Intake of dairy products is linked to improved bone health, and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
-The intake of dairy products is especially important to bone health during childhood and adolescence, when bone mass is being built.
-Intake of dairy products is also associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and with lower blood pressure in adults.

yeaaaaaaaah...I use the Harvard School of Public Medicine website for my main nutritional information, and it says that the USDA is not that trustworthy or specific, especially when it comes to dairy because their wallets are tight with the dairy industry.
