Milk News

This new information on milk just surfaced a day ago:

Drinking Milk While Pregnant May Lower Kids’ MS Risk

“Children born to mothers who drink lots of milk and have a high dietary intake of vitamin D during pregnancy have a much lower risk of developing multiple sclerosis later in life, researchers say.”

And this is the data that backs it up that I found truly amazing….

“The risk of MS among daughters whose mothers consumed four glasses of milk per day [during pregnancy] was 56 percent lower than daughters whose mothers consumed less than three glasses of milk per month,” Dr. Fariba Mirzaei, of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, said in a news release from the American Academy of Neurology.

What great news and reaffirms what I have believed my entire life, that milk is so incredibly healthy (not to mention tasty). I grew up in Wisconsin and couldn’t be more passionate about milk and dairy products. I now have two kids of my own, and our family drinks about 3 gallons of milk a week. I’m proud to say that it’s the primary beverage of our household.
