Got Milk? In our present society people are beginning to become more heath conscious of what exactly they are putting into their bodies and milk is one of the ‘wonder’ drinks. No one really takes the time to think of the nutrition value behind milk because many have grown up drinking it. There are many quarrels about milk and what exactly it provides for the body. My being a milkoholic is what really drove my interest in this controversy. Many people grew up drinking milk and always were told that it helps you grow and is makes you strong, well at least that is what was put into my head and that is why getting to the bottom of what milk really does is crucial. Milk, the drink that “does our body good”, is being promoted for providing Vitamins A, D, E, K, B1, B2, B6, and B12.

Many studies say that the calcium in milk is so little that people shouldn’t look to milk as their main source for calcium. For example the CDC in 2007 showed that a cup of Calcium fortified orange juice has the same amount of Calcium that the cup of milk contained. Another food that provided equal to more calcium was a taco, this study was taken by USDA in 2005. This is thought
