Dairy Products and Ovarian Cancer
While the association between ovarian cancer and 3 servings of dairy per day was not that strong, the fact that any risk was there is of concern given the blind faith we give in dairy products. I have patients that guiltily admit that they don’t drink milk and so are worried about their bone health. I have patients in community health presentations that are astounded that I would even suggest that dairy is not good for us. I will continue to give the dairy industry credit for one of the most phenomenol marketing campaigns in history: getting the American public to religiously believe that dairy is absolutely essential to good health despite very minimal evidence to support this.
