How to keep dairy out of your diet for years and years?

Longmont, Colorado (CNN) The long-term health risks associated with dairy consumption are well-established, but they may be difficult to measure and quantify, according to a study released Thursday by the Institute of Medicine.
The report, titled “Dairy: Its impact on the environment and health,” found that while the vast majority of the dairy produced in the United States is organic, less than 10% of the milk consumed in the country is free-range or grass-fed.
Dairy is a large part of American diets, accounting for about 20% of all calories consumed in 2009, according the National Dairy Council.
“The health of the world is dependent on the well-being of people who consume it,” said the report, authored by former Vice President Joe Biden and published in the journal The Lancet.
“Dairy producers have been working hard to reduce environmental and health risks and to develop new ways to deliver milk to consumers.
But it is a complex and challenging issue, and our study raises important questions about the benefits of this complex practice.”
The report comes as the United Nations and other agencies are exploring a potential international agreement to limit emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, from developing countries.
The United States has already signed an international agreement that would limit carbon emissions from developing nations, but some experts question whether that would make a difference in the global climate.
