Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"

“We investigated the association between calcium and dairy intakes and 12-y[ear] weight change in US men… Dietary, dairy, and supplemental calcium intakes were not significantly associated with weight change in multivariate analyses. The men with the largest increase in total dairy intake gained more weight than did the men who decreased intake the most (3.14 compared with 2.57 kg).”
