Jessica Ball, Associate Nutrition Editor of EatingWell, stated:

“Milk (and dairy in general) gets the blame for a lot of unwanted health outcomes. We’re sure you’ve heard that dairy causes acne, increases inflammation and can even be the reason you’re not losing weight. Spoiler: For those who aren’t lactose-intolerant or allergic to dairy, research doesn’t back up those claims. In fact, there are actually some impressive benefits that come with drinking a nutritious glass of milk….

If you aren’t lactose-intolerant or allergic to dairy, it’s totally OK to enjoy a regular glass of milk each day. From improving bone health to helping mitigate cognitive decline, drinking milk and incorporating other dairy items into your diet can come with some health benefits. As with any food, remember that moderation is key (an 8-ounce serving of milk probably wouldn’t completely fill many of the glasses in your cupboard). Since there are dairy farmers all across the U.S., try choosing milk that is produced locally. Making a connection with a local farmer can help you get a better-quality product that takes less of a toll on the environment, too.”
