Six-Decade UK Study Of Dairy Consumption Raises More Questions Than Answers

July 27, 2009: 08:47 AM EST
A UK dietary study begun in 1937 and continued through 2005 found an apparent link between childhood dairy consumption and a healthy adulthood. Data indicated that kids who ate dairy foods lived longer and avoided strokes. But experts said it’s difficult to say drinking milk was the actual cause. Families who ate a lot of dairy products tended to be more well off economically than those who didn’t, for example, and also more likely to eat fruits and vegetables. “I would be wary about saying [longevity] was due to milk consumption," a nutrition expert said.
