Got milk

The Globe raises questions about (cow) milk.

“I think [milk] is not necessary for good health, good nutrition,” said Lawrence Kushi, associate director for etiology and prevention research at Kaiser Permanente in California.

Dr. Kushi notes that many cultures that consume few dairy products have much lower rates of osteoporosis than North America, where consumption of milk and other types of dairy is higher. Japan, for instance, is well known for having a low rate of fractures related to osteoporosis despite the country’s low dairy consumption.

In addition, a growing body of research is casting doubt on the role dairy plays in protecting bones. One of the strongest pieces of evidence came from the Nurses’ Health Study, a multi-year investigation of women’s health conducted in the early 2000s.
