Anisha Patel, MD Biography

Title:
Associate Professor at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California at San Francisco
Position:
Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“As SSB (sugar sweetened beverage) intake has risen, consumption of vitamin D-, calcium-, and protein-rich milk, has declined. Growing youth are particularly vulnerable to decreases in milk intake; while they consume sufficient protein, they do not meet recommended dietary allowances (RDA) for vitamin D and calcium which promote bone health.”
