Got the Facts on Milk [Import]
3.0 out of 5 stars Just Say No!, April 17 2014
Okay, I really hate dairy products. So that's probably why I bought this documentary. I think what I hate the most is the way they've aquired this "halo of purity" in many people's eyes over the years.

Surprisingly, with almost 500 reviews over there, only eight are one star. Which at least makes the one I'm referring to easy to find; "How Much Cholesterol Do We Actually Need?", by D.M.

For a different perspective on blood cholesterol levels… Read more
