Listen to this great and FREE podcast by Dr. McDougall. This is really a must listen, McDougall quietly and soberly without raising his voice destroys the pro-dairy arguments by an industry researcher by citing the studies showing the harm of "liquid meat", and you must keep in mind that interview was 2 decades ago, and that the evidence from research today is greater against their side! You will notice that Greg Miller cannot respond adequately and always retreats saying that if milk was not healthy the American Dietary Association(ADA), the Federal Food and Drug Administration(FDA) and the American Medical Association(AMA) would not recommend dairy. However those are top down organizations which are too easy for industries with lots of influence, money and clout to bias and corrupt.
Greg Miller, Ph.D. (taped interview)
In this lively 1993 interview, Dr. McDougall talks with National Dairy Council spokesperson Greg Miller, who holds a Ph.D. in nutrition, and at the time of this interview was vice president of nutrition research and technical services. Despite research pointing to dairy’s role in inhibiting the absorption of certain minerals (such as calcium and iron) and contributing high amounts of cholesterol and fat (that can lead to obesity, heart disease and stroke), Miller staunchly defends dairy products as safe, wholesome and nutrient-rich foods that are an important part of a well-rounded diet. Miller explains that we should not look at just one food (such as dairy) when searching for connections to our modern day ailments, but should instead look at the overall balance and variety of our diet. Also discussed are the viruses (such as leukemia and AIDS) and infections (such as E. coli, salmonella, staph, and tuberculosis) carried by cattle, and how they may affect the health of people who regularly consume dairy products.
Note: This is a taped interview from “Your Good Health” (8/5/93), hosted by Dr. McDougall.

I also rewatched Forks over Knives and noticed they had another dairy spokesperson who gave the same lame sales pitch mentioning that the ADA, AMA and FDA are all for dairy:http://www.hulu.com/watch/279734
