A glass of milk is really a good prescription for health. For the prevention of osteoporosis, a high calcium intake is recommended especially for women. It is suggested that a daily intake of low fat milk or skim milk with 2 glasses per day can give women sufficient levels of calcium supply especially if taken regularly during the premenopausal state. Therefore, it is also best for adult women to be extra careful in their diet and use low-fat milk every time you have to use milk in your food.
