Got Milk? [infographic]

June 26, 2012 |  by  |  Food, Lifestyle

How much do you know about milk? Prior to this infographic, I must admit that my knowledge was pretty limited. I drink milk occasionally, at best. I probably eat an average of five bowls of cereal a year and drink a few glasses a month. My borhters, on the other hand, are the complete opposite. They devour cereal like it’s going out of style. The two of them probably average a gallon a day. Which is a half gallon a day per brother. Yikes!

Now for some milky knowledge. Milk hits your grocery store in just two days, making it the freshest beverage. Humans over 9 years of age should drink 3 glasses of milk per day, which means I better get to the grocery and up my milk intake. Milk is also an excellent source of calcium, riboflavin, vitamin d, phosphorus, vitamin b-12 and many more. These health benefits just can’t be beat! Lets drink some milk, preferably with some cookies. ;) [Via]

    “My borhters” ? regardless of the lack of proof reading of the post commentary, I wish the “decoding the dairy aisle” portion had bullet points instead of that all that text.

    Humans were not designed to consume milk after a certain age and definitely not from a different species.  The milk industry really needs to stop tricking people.

    shocking. of course this was created by the dairy council. calcium in 1 cup of milk = calcium in 1 cup of collard greens. except we can actually absorb the calcium from the collards.

      thank you Jessi. I noticed that lie too.

    FACT: Nations with the highest levels of dairy consumption also have the highest rates of osteoporosis. Calcium is better absorbed from plants.
