The dairy guidelines and tips that the USDA recommends as a healthy diet habit are:
These are the recommendations according to the USDA as a healthy lifestyle solution. I am not 100% sold on this supposed healthy diet habit. It is very confusing to me how the countries with the lowest consumption of milk products actually have the lowest incidence of osteoporosis. The countries with the highest consumption of milk products also have the highest incidence of osteoporosis! Very confusing! Also, it is quite possible to get enough calcium by consuming healthy greens daily in your diet.
My recommendation for milk products would be to definitely purchase organic milk products only. Non-organic milk can be from dairy cows that have been fed genetically modified corn and other feed. This does not agree with them. They must be given antibiotics to avoid sickness. They may also be given hormones to increase their milk production. You are drinking these hormones and antibiotics. Avoid them by purchasing organic milk products is my lifestyle solution! And eat your greens! Mom was right!
