DEAR PROCON.ORG READERS: We’re being outspent by biased organizations that use millions of dollars to misinform you. This week we’re asking our readers to help us. We survive on donations, which keep us independent and ad-free. If every one of our readers gave $3 now, the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be over. We’re a small nonprofit, but it costs a lot to keep our servers, research staff, and programs going. ProCon.org is your oasis on the Internet for unbiased information on important issues. If ProCon.org is useful to you, please take a minute to keep us online and ad-free. Thank you.
Senior Nutrition Scientist at the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)
Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
"I think that high-fat, high-calorie dairy products actually play a key role in America's obesity epidemic... Milk is the single largest source of saturated fat - a leading contributor to coronary disease - in children's diets, according to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development."
"Dairy Ads May Dupe Dieters," Detroit Free Press, May 24, 2004
