1. Milk is full of antibiotics!
2. Drinking milk is linked to early puberty.
The evidence simply is not there. Research shows drinking milk doesn't cause early puberty.....
...and the real reason might be obesity.
3. Milk causes acne.
As we reported recently, milk does not cause acne and actually has some anti-acne traits. Milk is a preventative and contains Vitamins A and D which are important for skin health.
4. Milk doesn't have as much calcium as vegetables.
Milk is a power-packed source of calcium that others can't match in one tasty serving. One serving of milk has 240 mg of Calcium. Broccoli only has 34, beans have 72, almonds 72, and the list goes on. Dairy products are nutrient dense and give you the calcium and Vitamin D you need.
5. Eating dairy products will make you fat and contribute to heart disease.
Actually, milk has been proven to help people lose weight in studies. Also research shows that dairy consumption can contribute to the lowering of blood pressure. Vitamin D in milk can reduce the risk of heart disease and saturated fats found in dairy products are also now thought to be protective, and not bad.
Remember, dairy is no trick and more than just a treat. My milk is safe, nutritious, and just plain delicious. Don't be scared; drink your milk, including chocolate milk, the official drink of Halloween.
