    Researchers say that organic milk really is better for you than the regular stuff.

    A recent study showed that it’s higher in the fatty acids that are good for the heart and it has more protein.

    It all comes down to cows’ diets. Those that eat grass produce milk higher in omega-3 acids while those that munch on corn end up making milk heavy on the omega-6 variety.

    Sure, they’re both essential, but getting too much of the 6s and not enough of the 3s has been linked to autoimmune diseases, heart problems, and cancer.

    Ideally, a person should consume them in an omega 6 to omega 3 ratio of 2.3 to 1, and organic milk does a better job of making that happen.

    If organic milk doesn’t fit in the budget, experts recommend that regular whole milk be consumed instead of the lower fat varieties as it has a better balance.

    Scientists discovered this by comparing 400 samples that had been taken from farms throughout the United States over a span of a year and a half.

    The study was funded in part by two organic farming organizations, but they weren’t involved in structuring the research.
