California Milk Processor Board Biography

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

“Milk isn’t only a calcium source, it’s a nutritional powerhouse with additional performance enhancing properties like protein and vitamin D. That’s why top athletes drink four to five 8-ounce glasses of milk daily.

Research shows that milk supports muscle protein accretion, as well as being an excellent choice for a long lasting muscle-protecting protein. Plus, milk contains whey — the most common form of protein found in bodybuilding supplements.

Anyone who cares about being active and keeping fit should drink milk. And it’s good to know that low-fat and nonfat milk pack the same nutritional punch as regular milk.”
