This low-fat milk craze has been going on for decades [as has margarine] but have we become thinner? Quite the opposite. Simple carbohydrates (white bread, white rice) and sugars are your enemies, not fat.

Milk SHOULD be described, Not according to the % milk fat content, which suggests a low fat content, but rather like other foods, by the % of calories supplied by fat. It seems to me that the current system is a deliberate deception by the dairy industry, to misrepresent and so promote their product, at the expense of the health of 100s of millions of people.
