Got Milk? Got The Good Low Fat Stuff?
There is a lot of milk produced here in the Yakima Valley. The Yakima Valley region of central Washington (Benton, Franklin, Klickitat and Yakima counties) – with 90+ dairies and over 110,000 cows – is one of the largest dairy-producing areas in the nation. Our state's cows are 4th in average milk produced per cow. The Dairy industry is big business.
Holy Cow. But wait there's more.
There seems to be a "fountain of youth" component to cow's milk. Those who drank no cow milk of any kind had more biological aging compared to those who consumed low-fat milk. Researchers conclude that drinking milk isn't a bad thing but consumers should be more aware of the health impacts and benefits of the kind of milk you choose to drink.
