I've just stopped drinking milk as much as I was told to cut down to see if it reduced my spots and it did. But when I do drink it,blue (full fat) is the way forward....

IIRC the fat difference between full and semi-skimmed milk is only 2%, and full milk retains more good nutrients.

Out here in E Anglia the ordinary full milk is as rich as the Channel Islands milk you pay more for in towns!

So?

Recent reports said people who drink milk actually have a lower incidence of stroke and cardio-vascular disease.

And milk's a cheap and plentiful source of protein which can be drunk plain and used in all sorts of foods, and still delivered here :)

I love milk, have recently bumped it up again. Hoping to starte rippetoe starting strength he recomends a gallon a day.

I think thats a bit much, 2 litres is enough for me. Full fat.

A Swedish doctor and others are gaining a lot of support for the idea that it's not saturated fat that causes atherosclerosis, but contributes to arterial plaque build-up in areas with chronic low-level imflammation caused by infections and/or toxins.

This chimes with the fact that for centuries humans have had a diet high in saturated animal fats without a high incidence of cardio-vascular disease.

Transmission of infections is greater where mobility is higher. He has had success treating CVD with antibiotics.

Yes mate just under 4 liters. Its an easy way to get calories in, handy aswel if out and about.

Aparently it has or increases igf1. I read it in a debate about rippetoes gallon recomendation.
