No such restrictions: Dairy products are not harmful to patients with Cancer unless they are overweight, in which case we try to minimize dairy product use in order to lose weight. Over-weight is not good for anyone including patients with cancer. As such patients with Cancer are allowed to drink milk, especially reduced fat type of milk is good for their nutrition.
