Dorothy Teegarden, PhD Biography

Professor of Food and Nutrition at Purdue University
Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"

“Milk can help your bones reach their potential so you won’t break bones now, or develop bone diseases, like osteoporosis, later on. It may also help you prevent gain of fat as you grow older.”
