Reasons to Keep Drinking Milk

When it comes to milk, many of us have been opting for trendy alternatives like nuts over cow. But eliminating classic dairy entirely means you may miss important health benefits.

By Kiera Carter, Shape®

You probably grew up guzzling milk. It’s a solid source of protein, and it helps you build strong bones. Flash forward a few decades, though, and it’s no longer front and center in your fridge—if it’s in there at all. More and more of us have gone vegan or Paleo and ditched dairy. Even if your diet doesn’t prohibit milk, concerns about its link to acne, allergies and heart disease may have made you nix it.

Say Yes to These Cheeses!

Cheese sometimes gets a bad rap, but these varieties have some surprisingly healthy perks.

By Juno Demelo, Better Homes & Gardensl®

Cheese often gets vilified as a food group for being high in fat, calories and sodium. While it’s true that you don’t want to overdo it on serving size, cheese can add flavor to otherwise-healthy meals—and some varieties include additional health benefits as well. Here are several kinds of cheese to add to your diet.

Allergies are in Season

By Konstantin Vlahos, Pharmacy Intern and Kimberly DeMagistris, PharmD, RPH, Price Chopper Supermarkets

As the summer kicks into gear, so too can seasonal allergies. Allergies are caused by the body’s immune system reacting to particles in the environment like pollen, dust, or even hair from household pets. As flowers begin to bloom, pollen and other allergens are carried through the air and can cause sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes, as well as other symptoms.
