DAIRY CONTRIBUTES LESS TO WEIGHT MANAGEMENT – (12-3-07)By
Is higher dairy consumption associated with lower body weight and fewer metabolic disturbances?
In public health circles, the devotion to dairy is almost godlike. Try to find ANY kind of public health recommendation that doesn’t include daily dairy servings. The problem is, there is very little strong research to actually support these recommendations, and plenty of reasons not to. There has been much blame on childhood obesity on the switch away from milk to soft drinks.
However, we see in this study that dairy has very little ability to help manage weight, and this was at 4.1 servings / day. Combine this with the hormones, antibiotics and allergy potential, and it really has no right being on the ranks of every public health recommendation.
