Marian Rewers, MD, PhD Biography

Title:
Clinical Director of the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“A meta-analysis of selected studies suggested that children with diabetes are 60% more likely to have had an early exposure to cow’s milk than nondiabetic children. […]

The environmental factors suspected of triggering Beta-cell autoimmunity that we discussed above-entroviruses and cow’s milk-have also been linked to the onset of clinical diabetes.”
