Consumption of milk and calcium in midlife and the future risk of Parkinson
I’ve said it before, and I will say it again (and again, and again…) that I think the idea that cow’s milk “does a body good” is one of the most successful marketing campaigns based on little to no evidence ever exposed to the American public. Good luck finding any articles not sponsored by the dairy industry that show a strong beneficial effect on dairy products for any condition.
Conversely, dairy intake has been linked to food allergy, ear infections, osteoporosis (or at least no protection from), Type 1 diabetes and now add Parkinson’s to the list. Ironically, although this showed a 2.3 fold increase (quite a large increase) and it was in a major neurology journal, not a PEEP from the media. Compare this to a 3-lb decrease in body weight over 6 months with dairy intake (and no-one just body fat–just weight) and you would think the Holy Grail for America’s weight problem was found.
