Milk Is Good For You, Milk Is Bad For You

Milk used to be recommended by Nanny for building strong bones and healthy teeth. Indeed, in the days of my childhood, free milk was distributed at primary school.

Now, thanks to Nanny's obsession with all things pertaining to what we eat and rink, milk has been declared to be dangerous.

A study conducted by Professor Karl Michaelsson, of Uppsala University Sweden, has suggested that it does little to strengthen bones and can double the risk of an early death.

The study that tracked 61,000 women and 45,000 men for 20 years found there was no reduction in broken bones for those who consumed the most milk. Those who drank three glasses or more a day (680ml) were twice as likely to die early than those who consumed less than one.

Professor Michaelsson is quoted by the Telegraph:
Our results may question the validity of recommendations to consume high amounts of milk to prevent fragility fractures. A higher consumption of milk in women and men is not accompanied by a lower risk of fracture and instead may be associated with a higher rate of death.”
However, one study should not a public policy make!
Read his words carefully, and you will see the use of the word "may"; ie he is not sure.
Thus before certain obsessive food fascists jump on their horses and tell us to stop drinking milk, let us just work to the maxim that a sensible and well balanced diet is the best way to enjoy your life and your food.
I drank three pints of milk a day, when I was a kid, and it never did me any harm!

    I wonder what daft bastard allocated a huge sum of public funds 20 years ago so that the milk drinking of over 100,000 people could be monitored.

    The results of spending all that money are inconclusive and irrelevant because nobody cares and nobody will take any notice.

    What the fuck are we supposed to drink?

    Alcohol rots your brain, fruit juices rot your teeth and now milk will kill you.

    I don't know about you, Ken, but I've had my fill of so-called "experts" telling me what I can and cannot eat! Why don't they keep their mouths shut, instead of scaring people to death on the basis of one study? As Anonymous states, according to the "wisdom" of these "experts" we cannot drink anything, except water, and hasn't that got chemicals in? Moderation in ALL things is the best approach!
