I'm not sure why he says in one breath that "calcium may raise cancer risk" and in another breath "calcium supplements ... may reduce the risk of colon cancer." Why he says that "men may not want to take calcium supplements" but "supplements of calcium may be reasonable for women" although "studies of calcium supplementation have shown no benefit in reducing fracture risk."
I don't think he presents a clear picture. In my mind:
- Dairy foods are not necessary and may be harmful.
- Calcium supplements are not necessary and may be harmful.
"[Consumption of dairy products] is one of the most consistent dietary predictors for prostate cancer in the published literature."Hyman didn't mention the pus. He should have mentioned the pus. Robert Cohen mentions the pus. Boy, does he. There's pus in milk. Lots of it. That alone would have me ditching the dairy.
