Shoud We Only Serve Kids Organic Milk?

Study Shows Benefits of Drinking Organic Milk

In the article More Helpful Fatty Acids Found in Organic Milk published in The New York Times last week, author Kenneth Chang discusses a study that shows “Whole milk from organic dairies contains far more of some of the fatty acids that contribute to a healthy heart than conventional milk, scientists are reporting.”

The study’s lead author says drinking whole organic milk “will certainly lessen the risk factor for cardiovascular disease,”

A debate has been raging for years over whether girls are now reaching puberty earlier than ever before. The debate escalated in 1997, when the journal Pediatrics published a study of 17,000 girls by Dr. Marcia Herman-Giddens of the University of North Carolina that found outward signs of puberty that precede menstruation — budding breasts and pubic hair — were hitting younger. Many say that cow’s milk is to blame.

What do you think? Should we only serve children organic milk?
