I also gave up milk many years ago and felt better and have never looked back.

>>There are a few people out there who focus on being anti-milk, but some of them have very bad reputations for several reasons....including veracity.


>>I wouldn't mind knowing real, scientifically backed up reasons, for avoiding dairy ( eggs too ) from a health perspective.

I agree. The article i posted is by Walter Willett. He is a renowned researcher and publisher of data. He is not a "second hand" source but what you may consider a primary source. I can post the studies he is referencing in the main reasons he recommends to avoids it, but I think the article does it justice.

You can read about him here

>>I don't think you should repeat information other people have done ( well, maybe in that nifty book you are working on :) ).

As I am not a "lead" researcher though I do participate in the research we do here at the center, so I can only repeat informstion that has been done in studies that other people do. I am very selective about what i repeat and is always backed up by research, whether i list it or not and am always glad to post the references.

I can tell you that in the studies Pritikin has does (and are doing) on cancer, (breast, prostate) we remove all dairy products from the subjects. Dairy has been shown to increase IGF-1, which can cause an increase in growth rates of cancer. Ornish has done the same. It should be noted that in his "vegan" studies on cancer, he does give his subjects fish oil.

>>How about just a list of reasons? We can then research it ourselves. This is what I know, as far as real reasons to avoid dairy:

>>1. It is one of the top allergenic foods

>>2. The proteins may contribute to cancer

Isn't that enough??
