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

“Dairy products provide approximately 73% of the calcium available in the US food supply. When dairy products are eliminated, calcium intake is compromised. Because of the increased importance of calcium and its relationship to various diseases…maintaining calcium intake of 1,000 to 1,300 mg/day for adults is a primary goal.”
