Do We Really Need Our 3 Daily Servings of Dairy?

Up until very recently, I have always believed that 3 servings of dairy per day is absolutely essential for good bone health.  However, during my public health nutrition class last semester, some interesting discussions took place that revealed this notion may in fact be false. Two of my classmates did some enlightening research on the subject, and they have permitted me to share their findings with you today.  Each of the below slide shows argues one side of the dairy debate. Then, you can decide for yourself whether or not 3 daily servings of dairy is an appropriate recommendation. Share your thoughts in the comments section!

Unfortunately, the pro-dairy slide show keeps causing my internet to crash. You can view it at http://www.slideshare.net/NicoleGeurin/presentations.  The presentation is titled Benefit-risk Assessment for Including Dairy Foods in the Diet.
