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

“Calcium is a mineral needed by the body for healthy bones, teeth, and proper function of the heart, muscles, and nerves. The body cannot produce calcium; therefore, it must be absorbed through food. Good sources of calcium include dairy products such as low fat or nonfat milk, cheese, and yogurt.”
