    NYT: A large study has found evidence that milk consumption may slow the progression of knee arthritis.

    In this study, researchers collected detailed health, diet and behavioral data on 2,148 men and women with knee osteoarthritis. They performed annual knee X-rays for the next four years, measuring the narrowing space between bones in the knee joint to gauge disease progression.

    They found that increasing milk consumption was associated with slower progression of the disease in women. In men, only those who consumed the most milk — seven or more glasses a week — saw the effect. More than 90 percent of the people in the study drank fat-free or low-fat milk, and the study did not find the effect with cheese and other dairy products.

    I go though about three gallons of milk every week so I should be ok then.

    Dairy is bad for you overall. There are too many other things that are just as good as milk for your joints.

    I never soak my joints in milk, Scruffy. It makes them taste weird.

    general milk question:

    i left an unopened gallon of 2% in my truck overnight (forgot it after i brought in everything else) it was in there from 9pm to about 10am this morning. outside temp was low 60s overnight but the container didn't really feel cold at all this morning.

    think it's still ok to drink? maybe ok to cook with?

    Not true, that's an old tail from the 80's health food craze. Things have changed and science have proven its good for you in moderation.

    Besides vitamin D and Calsium, it has a lot of protein, its been show to lower blood pressure, help with muscle building, weight loss and depression just to name a few.

    Have you heard of the Maasai tribe in Africa? Their diet is almost entirely huge quantities of milk and animal products. Probably the most healthy looking tribe you will ever see. And it not just skin deep, they have been studied for years and come up very healthy unless they have switched to modern processed foods like wheat.

    the key is eating enough dirt and germs when you're a kid, it supercharges your immune system for your whole life.

    it's true, it's scientific fact, really.

    kids raised in antiseptic super clean urban environments are alot more susceptible to disease.

    Milk is really good for health, especially if it's unboiled and fresh from the cow. I used to drink fresh milk back in Pakistan. Too bad Hong Kong only has processed milk.

    Also, according to a nutritionist I know, adding brown sugar with milk helps to increase the absorption of all the minerals and vitamins.
