Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
"Dairy products are not the best source of calcium as they cause calcium losses at the same time as increasing calcium intake... Human use of dairy products is a recent and unnecessary development. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and root crops and low in salt provides the best path back to healthy bones."
