Mayo Clinic Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“Although there is some evidence that getting three servings a day of low-fat or fat-free dairy products can enhance weight loss, this evidence is not conclusive. However, even if further evidence shows that dairy products have little effect on weight loss, they are still good sources of calcium, which is essential for bone health.”
