You know, I think I read about that, too, though the article I read said something about calcium being beneficial in reducing your risk of colon cancer.  I believe my article was based more on calcium intake and not on milk specifically.  It was stating the good that is derived from ingesting an adequate supply of calcium either through food, milk or supplements, and stated that it had been shown to lower your risk of colon cancer, kidney stones, and a few others.  Definitely caught my attention.
