Our Experts

What Do the Experts Say?

We have a deep bench of physician and nutrition advisors at Switch4Good who help us hone our thinking and guide our education and advocacy work on the dangers of dairy consumption—especially for children. Here are some highlights, cherry-picked from our award-winning Switch4Good Podcast—but there are many more episodes available here.

Dahlia Marin (Registered Dietitian, Certified Gastrointestinal Nutritionist, Pediatric Gut Health Specialist) explains how children can get all the nutrients they need from whole foods, without relying on dairy products.

Leigh Ettinger (Board Certified in Pediatrics, Pediatric Nephrology, and Obesity Medicine) discusses how historically, humans did not consume dairy products. Many cultures across the globe suffer from lactose intolerance, so dairy is not part of their cuisine.

James Loomis (MD, Board Certified in Internal Medicine) discusses how removing dairy products can improve asthma and allergies.

Brenda Davis (Registered Dietitian) comments on how dairy products are not required to meet calcium needs in children.
