Eat your kale

Silberner, Joanne

U.S. News & World Report;10/12/92, Vol. 113 Issue 14, p17
Recounts the controversy engendered last week when the fringe group, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, including Dr. Benjamin Spock, announced that cow's milk isn't good for children. The American Academy of Pediatrics says there is no evidence milk harms older children who do not have allergies or digestive problems and that it is a great source of calcium and other nutrients. Comments on the confusion.
