Aged cheese would probably be the best form though.

If you're gonna eat dairy, it should be fermented in some way so that the anti-cancer effect of the menaquinones offset the pro-cancer effect of the estrogens and igf-1/other growth factors.

There aren't any actionable conclusions to draw from such a study. There are plenty of other reasons to avoid dairy though.

I haven't even read the study yet, but look - fats are molecules. Molecules with actual names. Olive Oil, which is sooooo great according to the medics and media, contains a lot of Oleic Acid a mono-unsaturated fatty acid. Guess what - Lard is over 40% oleic acid too, and I don't see any doctors telling us to eat more melted lard.

What I'm saying is, the fats in dairy are not, in any way, unique to dairy - they are found in loads of other things, from palm oil to olive oil to tallow to lard. Also, dairy fats contain other stuff, too - like hormones

Looking at the study, it's rather patently stupid. Mice are predominantly herbivore - vegetarian. Their natural diet involves a fair bit of grains and seeds. Is it any wonder that their gut bacteria do better on vegetable seed fats than animal fats?

The mouse diet is totally different to the human diet. SCIENCE FAIL. Who DOES these studies?

That's easy. To quote from the study, "Mouse experiments... They used genetically modified mice..."

Are you a genetically modified mouse?
