I think its important to have milk in your diet, but i don't think everyone needs alot of milk. As long as we all eat healthily and a variety of food types it isn't essential. Young babies and children up until they have enough food in a day to have a healthy diet it is essential. Pregnant women should also have some milk in their diet to help their unborn baby(s) develop well. Having too much milk can also cause problems, which is the same with everything. Its ok to eat sweet foods and greasy foods, aslong as you dont have your whole diet full of those sorts of foods. ~Joeys wife

It's an important source of calcium both when we are children and growing and needing it for strong teeth and bones and when we are older when we are less able to absorb calcium; it can help prevent illnesses like osteoporosis the brittle bone disease.

Dairy products are one of the four food groups, the others being meat/eggs and certain alternatives, fruits and vegetables, and grains. If one doesn't drink chose to drink milk, and even if one does, it's important to consume products that are made with milk, on a daily basis.
