A final note on the non-link between dairy and cancer

Note: I first posted this as a comment in response to my "Milk does not cause cancer" post, which was a follow up to "That email about Chinese women not getting breast cancer has it wrong."

It's certainly true that Asian countries DO have a lower rate of prostate and breast cancer. But there are MANY, MANY, MANY differences between Western and Asian lifestyles aside from dairy consumption.
