Susanna C. Larsson, PhD Biography

Title:
Epidemiologist in the School of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cambridge
Position:
Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“In my opinion it is better for women to drink milk than not to drink milk. Ovarian cancer is relatively uncommon. Colorectal cancer is much more common, and milk apparently decreases colon cancer risk. So I don’t think women should be worried about it.”
