Christiane Northrup, MD Biography

Title:
Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Vermont
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“[C]onventionally produced milk can be a problem food for many children and adults…

Dr. [Frank] Oski’s honesty about the adverse health effects of dairy foods is a much-appreciated contribution…

Having said all that, I have come to the conclusion that when dairy foods are produced organically, without bovine growth hormone and antibiotics, they have a very different effect on the body.”
