With over 400,000 dairy cattle in Michigan, milk is kind of a big deal around here. For years we've been told to watch the dairy intake as a part of our diets.

This is based on research from McMasters University in Canada, that showed there was no link between saturated fat and coronary heart disease, cardiovascular disease, ischemic stroke or type 2 diabetes.
