Milk is good for you, right? Well, there’s no such thing as a good thing when it is abused, say doctors. One glass of milk is good, there is no question about that. It strengthens your bones, and adds vitamins and years to your life. Two glasses are even better. But when you start drinking three glasses of milk a day, there is a chance that you’re cutting down your lifespan, while not adding much benefit that the first two glasses have already given.
 A British study that tracked 61,000 women and 45,000 men for twenty years found that there was no reduction in broken bones for those who consumed more milk. On the other hand, there was a rather alarming finding that showed that there may be an increased risk of death, where people who drank more than three glasses a day were twice as likely to die early than those who drank less than one.
 The possibility is that while milk is great for replenishing bone tissue, it also consists of fat that can hasten heart conditions and premature death. This flies in the face of advice given by doctors historically to aging patients, to drink up to three glasses of milk to account for loss of bone tissue which happens faster and faster as people age.
 However, there is a lot of scepticism about the results, with many established researchers questioning whether one study could overrun all the previous knowledge that we’ve accumulated. They say that the study’s results have to be independently replicated before it could be used to give advice to patients on milk consumption.
