The Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine wrote in a Jan. 2002 Fact Sheet "Understanding Lactose Intolerance":

“There is no reason for people with lactose intolerance to push themselves to drink milk. Indeed, milk and other dairy products do not offer any nutrients that cannot be found in a healthier form in other foods. Surprisingly, drinking milk does not even appear to prevent osteoporosis, its major selling point.”
