Since the days we were at school we were told that drinking milk is good for you. However, as we reached our adult years we were warned that too much milk poses a threat.

Advantages:

May help with weight-loss

Milk contains fat-burning properties which can help with weight loss, especially in women who drink 3 servings a day.

Packs a protein punch

Milk is rich in good proteins that supply all the amino acids to your body, unlike popularly branded protein shakes.

Better muscle mass

Milk is a great beverage choice after a workout as its proteins strengthen muscles and aid muscle recovery.

Disadvantages:

Increased risk of cancer

A study in the British Medical Journal suggests that women who drink milk regularly are more prone to cancer than those that don’t. The connection is due to the number of growth hormones in milk.

Causes acne

Milk can cause inflammation in the body. One of the ways in which this may show is acne.
