Willett's essay is interesting. However it seems he did not address the issue of vitamin absorption when he talked about K and D.

Since K and D are lipophilic (fat soluble) not water soluble, it seems that milk would be a good source for those vitamins, since it contains typically about twice as much calories from fat as from lactose. In addition, since there are no vegetable sources of vitamin D3 that I know of, while the other source being expensive fish oil, drinking milk or consuming some fatty milk products like cream or butter might not be a bad way of getting D3. Mind you I am not saying that milk must be good for everyone.
