Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
"Organically reared cows, which eat high levels of fresh grass, clover pasture and grass cover silage, produced milk which is on average 50% higher in vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), 75% higher in beta carotene (which our bodies convert to vitamin A) and two to three times higher in the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthine than non-organic milk... Beta carotene, lutein, [and] zeaxanthine are recognised as an important part of a healthy diet."
"Healthier Organic Livestock Products: Antioxidants in Organic and Conventional Produced Milk," paper presented at the First Annual EU Project Quality Low Input Food and Soil Association Annual Conference, Jan. 2005
