Not likely.: Sounds like a good part of a healthy and balanced diet.

No: The human body is incredibly tough, and genghis khan's troops lived largely on milk. Scaring people about what they eat it big business, and most of what you read is silly stuff. Unless you're from a kidney-stone family or have a known biochemical defect involving calcium, eat whatever you want that provides enough of your basic nutrients.
