To the Doctors: PLEASE LOOK AT THE LATEST RESEARCH BEFORE MAKING HEALTH CLAIMS! Yesterday on the show, the Doctors were making a smoothie and as they poured in the milk, they said that it reduces belly fat. The dairy industry has been sued for making these false claims that dairy aids in weight loss, and they can no longer advertise as such, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Available research does not support these claims of weight-loss.
"The dairy industry’s weight-loss campaign was based largely on three small studies conducted by Michael Zemel, Ph.D., a professor of nutrition at the University of Tennessee whose funding came from dairy industry sources and who patented the dairy-weight-loss claim. Out of 27 randomized, controlled research trials investigating the effects of dairy products on body weight, Dr. Zemel’s were the only ones showing a link between dairy consumption and weight loss."
THE DAIRY INDUSTRY HAS BANKED ON CONSUMERS NOT TAKING AN OVERLY CLOSE LOOK AT ITS HEALTH CLAIMS!
