David Schardt Biography

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

“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.'”
