Milk Associated with Increased Mortality

An observational study in Sweden of over 100,000 men and women, followed for 13-22 years, found that high consumption of milk was associated with increased mortality and, in the women, higher risk of fractures. Women who reported drinking 3 or more glasses of milk per day nearly doubled their death rate from any cause compared to those who drank less than 1 glass per day. The authors caution that more research is needed.

PositiveTip: Excessive use of milk could be problematic. As always, moderation is vital.
