David Schardt Biography

Title:
Senior Nutritionist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“Maybe getting more calcium or calcium-rich dairy foods will help you lose weight. Maybe it won’t… There’s no evidence to support the milk industry’s claim that ‘more than a dozen research studies now support the finding that drinking 24 ounces of milk every 24 hours will people lose more weight than just reducing their caloric intake.'”
