Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD Biography

Title:
Former Professor of Integrative Medicine at Capital University
Position:
Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
Reasoning:

“The research supporting [the] connection between XO and hardening of the arteries is not clear-cut, but whether or not there is a definate cause-and-effect relationship between the two should not be a critical factor in deciding whether you should drink milk. This possible XO link to heart disease is but one more potential connection of milk to disease and premature death. The other factors already cited should be more than enough to convince you to shun milk as a beverage.”
