From your link:

"Overall, the risk of Parkinson's - even among men who drank a lot of milk - was low."

There was also a study saying that eating well-done steak can give you cancer. There comes a point where you just say f* it, you're going to die anyway.

i always find it interesting that when there's the slightest suggestion that a particular food might provide a slim chance of getting some sort of debilitating disease, the media and people go nuts with it. but when there's the slightest suggestion that a particular food might provide a slim benefit against getting some sort of debilitating disease, people barely bat an eyelash.

general health and fitness overrides all of the miniscule risks.

That's not always true at all. For example: People go nuts around all the foods that "burn fat magically" and buy unbeleivably insane amounts of it.

point taken. i guess it means that we require a greater return from minimal effort to take notice of it.

Exactly.

Although burnt food is a great source of carcinogens :)
