The pseudo science behind food sales campaigns for the past 60 years is pseudo science.
Pretty much all of the dietary advice and popularized platitudes you ever heard about food is fake sales marketing.

What's next? Is someone going to suggest to me that eating spinach straight out of a can doesn't impart superhuman strength?

This is what happened in research published in 1997 conducted by Harvard University. An impressive 77,000 female nurses were followed for 10 years.

What the hell? I tried to do a study like this and all I got was a restraining order.

It only causes forearm swelling and anchor tattoos and a desire for extremely anorexic women.

My personal study was that I had a glass of milk every morning for breakfast all through grade school and I've never broke a bone despite repeated deserving efforts.

Everyone in my family drinks massive quantities of milk. I can't remeber a single broken bone depite most of us engaging in physically dangerous work or play. I once got hit by a car on my motorcycle. The car's bumper hit my leg with enough force to put a 1" deep knee shaped dent in the gas tank but no broken bones.

I'm going with the same, we used to drink a ton of milk and nobody in my family has ever broken a bone.  Yup anecdote is data, stick it haters.  I don't care what anyone says but a large glass of near freezing milk is amazing after eating a brownie.

This must be one of the worst articles about a scientific atudy I've ever seen. The premis was that in growing children drinking enough milk is beneficial to skeletal growth. So the study follows a group of adultsover a period of years and only looks at incidents of fractures, with the unstated assumption that all other things i.e. diets and exercise were equal. Whatta loada crappa!

The reason for the hate on milk is that it was one of those things that were forced on us by bullying but well-meaning parents. That, and crappy refrigeration meant that the milk was often nasty  lukewarm or sour, but mom made you drink it anyway.  Of course, THEY never drank it themselves.

I often drink milk, and my bowels have always been able to deal with the lactose no prob.

In the US much dietary advice like the food pyramid comes from the USDA. Everybody knows what US stands for, but a surprising number don't know that the DA stands for Dairymen Advertisers. That is how milk got the number one place on the pyramid for years, and why our government recommends more milk drinking than other governments.

The first pyramid was published in Sweden in 1974. The 1992 pyramid introduced by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) was called the "Food Guide Pyramid" or "Eating Right Pyramid". It was updated in 2005 to "MyPyramid", and then it was replaced by "MyPlate" in 2011.
