This is a frequent claim that is made about milks effects on human biology: it makes children grow. What is the evidence for this claim? What components of milk might be involved? What is the significance of growth in height? What is milks relationship to strong bones?
Difference in height growth curves between white, non-Hispanic girls who drank >3 servings of milk per day and those who drank (Source: Reproduced and adapted with permission from the American Association for Cancer Research: Berkey et al).
