Con to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
"When we evaluated dairy foods, skim or low-fat milk consumption was modestly associated with overall ovarian cancer risk when cumulatively updated consumption was considered. For serous ovarian cancers, women consuming one or more servings of skim and low-fat milk daily had a 69% higher risk... Osteoporosis is [also] an important public health problem... Despite the hypothesized benefit of greater milk intake, several large studies have observed no association between dairy consumption and fracture risk in adult life."
