White milk is better if it’s green. Organic whole milk may have a healthier fat ratio than nonorganic varieties, a study in PLOS One reports. Organic moo juice contains 25% less inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids and 62% more anti-inflammatory omega-3s than nonorganic milk. The researchers credit the organically raised cows’ plant-rich diet, which translates to a better omega ratio in their milk. Study author Charles Benbrook, PhD, suggests three servings of dairy a day, in line with USDA guidelines.
