Dairy Council of California Biography

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

“Mounting research indicates that consuming more calcium in the diet – particularly from calcium-rich dairy foods – can speed up weight loss and reduce body fat, particularly abdominal fat. Consuming dairy products appears to help prevent body weight and fat gain in children and adults, Caucasians and African-Americans, males and females. In addition, dairy foods have proven to be more effective than calcium alone in moderating body weight/fat gain and accelerating weight/fat loss.”
