Yep, organic milk really is better for you than regular milk – NBC NewsWelcoming cow

The title here is a little bit misleading, since organic does not guarantee that the cows ate grass, just that they had access to it and any feed (aka corn) fed to them was also organic.

– A diet containing too many omega-6 fatty acids and not enough omega-3s has been linked to heart disease, as well as cancer, inflammation and autoimmune diseases.

– If organic milk is out of your budget, conventional milk is still OK – but choose whole milk, rather than skim or 2 percent.
