    MILK

    Women drinking 3 glasses of milk per day and one serving of veggies were 2.8X more likely to die

    Women with a high milk consumption who consumed 3 or more glasses of milk per day and less than one serving of fruits and vegetables were 2.8 times more likely to die over some number of years compared to women with a low milk consumption who consumed less than one glass of milk per day according to a study that analyzed data from food frequency questionnaires completed by 61,420 women in a Swedish cohort (1987–1990 baseline) and 36,714 women from a second survey (1997).

    “Dietary antioxidant intake [from fruits and vegetables], especially in women, seems to modify the elevated death rate associated with high milk consumption,” the authors of the study concluded.

    VITAMIN D

    Vitamin D’s effects potentiated when added to milk, Zane Kime, MD (1980)

    "Milk also has the peculiar property of enhancing the potency of vitamin D," according to a wonderful book published in 1980 called "Sunlight Could Save Your Life" by Zane Kime, MD.

    Adding 90 IU's of vitamin D to milk had a greater effect than adding 10X this much to cod liver oil. Many experts in the past have recommended that vitamin D should NOT be added to milk and other foods.

    DAIRY / CALCIUM

    Claims that dairy increases weight loss and fat loss are bogus

    Dairy and dairy calcium have been promoted as increasing weight loss and fat loss according to research supported by the Dairy Management, a marketing creation of the United States Department of Agriculture which was created to help to sell more dairy, milk and cheese. However, this research appears to be bogus, and other researchers have found no evidence of weight loss according to an article in the New York Times. Read the entire article | Email this article

    DAIRY / CALCIUM

    Meteoric rise in cheese consumption may a major contributor to obesity says Dr. Neal Barnard

    “If you want to look at why people are fat today, it’s pretty hard to identify a contributor more significant than this meteoric rise in cheese consumption,” Dr. Neal D. Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an advocacy group, said in an interview as quoted in an article in the New York Times about how dairy was promoted for weight loss, but the claims appear to be not true.

    GLYCOMACROPEPTIDE

    Glycomacropeptide-enriched whey meal replacement does not increase weight loss over skim milk powder

    "Glycomacropeptide is a peptide that has been shown to stimulate release of cholecystokinin [CCK], which may promote satiety," a new study from researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Adelaide, Australia starts out.

    However, people did not lose more weight when given glycomacropeptide-enriched whey protein power to use as a meal replacment than those given skim milk powder.

    In fact, those given glycomacropeptide-enriched whey protein powder as meal replacements lost 2 pounds less than those given skim milk powder as a meal replacement -- a weight loss of roughly 22 pounds versus 24 pounds.

    LIQUID CALORIES

    Women consume 104 more calories at a meal when given cola, orange juice or milk

    Women consumed an average of 104 more calories at a meal when they were given a caloric beverage containing 156 calories to drink with the meal of either cola, orange juice or low-fat milk containing 1 percent fat than when they were given a non-caloric beverage of either a diet soda, water or no beverage according to a study by Barbara Rolls and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, USA.

    In other words, liquid calories tend not to reduce calorie intake the way that solid food does. This has been shown in numerous other studies as well.
