In response to an article I wrote once entitled “Animal or Vegetable?” I received a letter from a dietitian the gist of which said “how dare you exclude such a major beneficial food group such as dairy produce when giving dietary advice to the general public?” Dairy produce, especially in the quantities the average person in Britain consumes, is a recent addition to our diets. You can be certain our ancestors weren’t running around milking buffaloes. In fact, many existing cultures consume no, or comparatively little dairy produce. So has the addition of milk produce been to our advantage or disadvantage? Are dairy products a necessary part of an ideal diet?
