I have never been able to understand this whole milk, lowfat milk, nonfat milk discussion.
And now NPR http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2014/02/12/275376259/the-full-fat-paradox-whole-milk-may-keep-us-lean is putting it into perspective. Some people don't drink whole milk because of the fat, but instead drink 2 percent or 1 percent, that really isn't that much different.
Whole milk has 3.25 percent fat, while 2 percent has, well, 2 percent and so on. Not much of a difference, really.
