Comment on the PLOS ONE paper on fatty acids in milk:
“The recent research by Dr. Benbrook and his colleagues provides the strongest evidence to date that milk from cows raised on pasture grasses and legumes on certified organic farms provides more omega-3 fatty acids and improves the overall heart health profile of fatty acids in our diet. Importantly, these results make especially clear that women of childbearing age can directly benefit their babies during pregnancy and lactation by ensuring adequate intake of these essential fatty acids from organic milk”
