Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“Eating three servings of low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese or yogurt is an easy way for Americans to get the recommended amounts of calcium and other essential nutrients they need. For those who are lactose intolerant, lactose-free and lower-lactose products are available. These include lactose-free milk, hard cheeses and yogurt. Milk and other dairy products are good sources of calcium, naturally offering the most calcium per servings.”
