A smart, 3-D printed cap that can determine when milk has gone bad has been created by engineers from UC Berkeley and Taiwan’s National Chiao Tung University. The results were published in the journal Microsystems & Nanoengineering.
The most likely culprit: lactose.
The British Medical Journal published a large study that tracked the dietary habits of over 100,000 people in Sweden. The study followed the participants for 20 years taking into account differences in lifestyle and demographics. The researchers at Uppsala University found that women who drank three or more glasses of milk per day were twice as likely to die earlier than those who drank less than one glass of milk per day; men had a slightly higher risk of dying early as well. The study also found that the more milk the women in the study drank, the more likely they were to experience bone fractures, especially hip fractures.
Kids drinking low-fat milk tended to be heavier.
Parenting toddlers is not an easy job. Consider the 2-year-old to-do list: Get tantrums under control. Potty train. Transition from whole milk to low-fat milk.
Scientists found a host of chemicals used to treat illnesses in animals and people in samples of cow, goat and human breast milk.
A cocktail of up to 20 painkillers, antibiotics and growth hormones, can be found in a glass of milk, scientists have shown.

Cleopatra would bathe in it as part of her beauty regime. Milk from donkeys, which was still being drunk in Victorian times, contains less fat and is more nutritious than cow’s milk. Researchers have found that drinking donkey’s milk could be a good way to lose weight and protect your heart.
Neither weight nor BMI had changed noticeably six months after children switched to low- or reduced-fat dairy products.
Australian researchers have found that kids who swap out regular dairy products for low-fat varieties consume less saturated fat but don’t seem to lose weight.
Scientists have successfully created a herd of more than 200 cows that is capable of producing milk that contains the characteristics of human milk.
Details are a bit thin on this one, but my initial reaction to this is an overwhelming grossness: Researchers in China have genetically modified some 200 cows so that the milk they produce is similar to human milk.
Organic milk is better for your health.
Milk from organic cattle that eat a fresh grass diet is consistently better for your health, a new study claims. Researchers have found that organic milk generally contained less saturated fat and more good fatty acids than milk produced at intensive commercial dairy farms.
Got milk? You may need a couple cups more than today’s food labels say to get enough vitamin D for strong bones. But don’t go overboard: Long-awaited new dietary guidelines say there’s no proof that megadoses prevent cancer or other ailments – sure to frustrate backers of the so-called sunshine vitamin.
Dairy Management, which has made cheese its cause is a marketing creation of the United States Department of Agriculture — the same agency at the center of a federal anti-obesity drive.
Early last year Domino’s Pizza was hurting. Domestic sales had fallen, and a survey of big pizza chain customers left the company tied for the worst tasting pies. Then help arrived from an organization called Dairy Management. It teamed up with Domino’s to develop a new line of pizzas with 40 percent more cheese, and proceeded to devise and pay for a $12 million marketing campaign.
Milk does help you lose weight and has other health benefits as well.
Milk helps advance weight loss? That’s a surprise to most of us, because many of the most popular diet programs exclude or minimize dairy products as part of their regimes. A two-year study shows not only that milk drinkers lose more weight, but that Vitamin D has other health benefits besides preventing skin cancer.
