more on milk

here is another recent one on dairy, this time pointed out to me by reader Matthew Clarke:

Hepatic accumulation of intestinal cholesterol is decreased and fecal cholesterol excretion is increased in mice fed a high-fat diet supplemented with milk phospholipids

So eat a high fat diet, but don't get a fatty liver.....because you shit out the cholesterol, if you are also eating milk phospholipids... ( and if you are a mouse)

The whole paper is available

I like the last sentence of the paper:

Whether or not this is of therapeutic relevance in man remains to be determined.
maybe something that should be written about every animal study out there!
