LOL. I do love cheese, but have to limit it, and eat aged cheeses that have less lactose.
Was surprised at the 75% lactose intolerant rate he mentioned. Seems high, but may be counting even small issues with dairy.

Well, for starters, I'm not a fan of Dr. Hyman. I don't care for his gung-ho anti-everything stance.
Additionally, this is talking about the food pyramid. The updated guidelines, the food plate, de-emphasizes milk, and talks more about protein, grains, and fruits/veggies.
I honestly am not up-to-date on the latest science. I enjoy milk, but I prefer not to drink my milk. I have a cup of lactose-free milk at bed time most nights to reduce acid reflux and help me sleep. I do, however, love cheese, and they could tell me tomorrow that cheese will give me foot cancer, and I'll keep on eating it. You gotta have vices. ;)

PETA has been using this type of research for ages in their campaigns. It isn't anything new. It is very difficult to tell what the truth is and what the truth isn't. One study says this, while another study says that. You don't know really what to believe. In fact it is almost impossible.
Me, personally, I don't drink milk, but I like dairy products like greek yogurt, cheese and so on... I guess what it comes down to is doing what you feel is right for your body.
