You know the slogan. Milk does a body good. Well, no, not really.

Dairy has been shown to have a negative affect on endothelial cells. This cell layer is a one cell thick lining of all of our blood vessels. Endothelial cells manufacture a protective molecule of gas called nitric oxide, which protects our blood vessels. It keeps our blood flowing smoothly, it is the strongest dilator of our blood vessels, it inhibits the formation of blockages, and it inhibits inflammation.
