The Harvard School of Public Health says drinking 3 cups a day may be more the influence of the dairy industry than scientific evidence. Drinking low-fat milk may actually cause more fat build up than the whole milk does. This is because fats tend to be absorbed slowly by our bodies making us feel full longer. Low fat is digested quickly and we feel hungry sooner. If you are a regular reader of this BLOG you know that there is evidence of health risks with any animal protein based foods but milk is a very high risk. It has been linked to cancer and heart disease. Remember we are the only animal that drinks milk after a very young age and the only animal that drinks the milk of another animal.
