Sadly there is: A lot of controversial opinions at the internet. A theory developed early 1960 -1980's linking milk homogenization and production of an enzyme call xanthine oxidase with an increase in coronary artery disease. Subsequent prospective epideomological studies have failed to showed that direct effect. In my opinion drink your milk but if you are worry change to soy milk. Exercise and eat healthy.
