Following the publication of a new study conducted by Swedish researchers on the association between milk consumption and health, Dr Anne Mullen, Director of The Dairy Council, issued the following statement:

“Scientists, including the authors of this research, vehemently warn that observational studies such as this showed be viewed with caution. On one hand the study suggests an association between milk consumption and mortality and fracture, yet an opposite trend with cheese and fermented milk consumption. Many other studies contradict the findings of this study with regard to milk. A similar study from Japan, published just this month, showed that drinking milk was associated with lower all-cause mortality in men and women. The nutritional benefits of milk and dairy products, including a range of vitamins and calcium, and potassium are well documented.”
