Orangic Milk or Regular Milk

Health 102 Is organic milk really that better for you? That was what I was thinking when we were discussing that in health class. Coach Deyo gave good ideas, but I still had my doubts. Because people have been drinking regular milk a long time and no one has died from it or didn’t get enough nutrients from it. So, why do people say organic milk is better for you. I was looking at a website called Men’s Health. It gives a few ideas about organic milk and regular milk. One thing said on the website made me think, why waste the money on organic milk if it doesn’t give you the effects you desire. “There are differences between organic and conventional milk production, but they may not have the effects consumers expect, says Thomas Overton, Ph.D., associate professor of animal science at Cornell University.” After I read this I was thinking maybe it’s all in the consumers mind that organic is better for them. Maybe that’s what the organic milk farms want them to think. The website also states that you get the same stuff from organic milk in regular milk. “For one thing, it’s not any healthier. “An eight-ounce serving of regular milk offers the same nine essential nutrients—including calcium, vitamin D, and potassium—as a glass of organic milk,” Mangieri says.” So, people that say they drink organic milk because it’s healthier for you are not correct, it’s basically the same type of milk just the cows are feed differently. This is what I read that gave me that idea that the organic dairy cows are just fed differently than the regular milk cows. “Are fed only organic grains, free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides; get at least 30 percent of their feed from pasture; aren’t treated with antibiotics, or with bovine growth hormone to increase milk production.” The website was talking about how organic dairy farms feed and treat their cows. In my opinion, that’s a good thing that they are being fed organic grains and not treated with growth hormones.

Willett, chairman of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, “There's no solid evidence that merely increasing the amount of milk in your diet will protect you from breaking a hip or wrist or crushing a backbone in later years” In his studies he found that women who drank milk twice a day were as likely to suffer bone breaks as women who drank it once…
