Just sawthis article for those of you interested.... this of course doesn't address the point made by those who believe milk is not good for you.

I heard about this on Radio Five this morning. Not sure I can wholeheartly believe it though. Since dd's have been drinking milk that's all I've bought. Now tossy dh has had to do the shopping for the last week, we've just had ordinary.

We used to have organic milk doorstop delivery but it would go off within a day (which was very frustrating as round here you don't get daily deliveries - just 3 times a week) so we switched to normal...

'cos the study was commissioned by the Soil Association. Don't get me wrong, used to be a member 'till last year, but they obviously have a vested interest in promoting any/everthing organic. If you want to buy organic stuff because you feel it has less c**p in it, fine, but to suggest it has more nutrients in it ... maybe I'm just too sceptical.

Carla - if you grow vegetables or let animals graze in a fertile field.... would it not have more nutrients ???? That is the issue.... we grow things in fields which are TOO weak so we add fertilizers and other chemicals to boost the growth ! Same for animals !
