- Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
“Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body. About 99% of the calcium in the body is found in bones and teeth, while the other 1% is found in the blood and soft tissue. Calcium levels in the blood and fluid surrounding the cells (extracellular fluid) must be maintained within a very narrow concentration range for normal physiological functioning… Dairy products represent rich and absorbable sources of calcium.”
