You’ve heard it countless times, and can
probably still picture those ‘90s TV
commercials – tie dye, skateboards, happy
kids: milk does a body good.
But a new study that questions reduced-fat
milk’s nutritional value, and milk as a whole
in the human diet, is sure to cause a stir.
Harvard professor David Ludwig’s latest paper
in the Journal of the American Medical
Association Pediatrics questions the role of
milk in human nutrition, and ponders why
there is a lack of evidence-based proof that
reduced-fat milk trumps whole milk, in terms
of obesity, saturated fats, and overall health.
