- Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
“Nutritional policies must also account for new evidence from large prospective studies indicating that milk-drinking men have increased risk of prostate cancer. The likely explanations are milk’s tendency to increase serum concentrations of insulin-like growth factor I, which is strongly associated with cancer risk, and its tendency to flood the body with calcium, causing a reactive drop in vitamin D activation (vitamin D helps maintain prostate cell maturity).”
