Does milk have a cataractogenic effect? Weighing of clinical evidence.

Lovers of milk may be highly vulnerable to acquiring cataracts.

​This study assessed whether high intake of milk can increase an individual's likelihood of having cataracts. A group of researchers looked at the milk consumption levels of hundreds of cataract patients from 3 different regions in India. 

The team of investigators observed that cataracts occurred with greater frequency among high consumers of milk. The findings of this study suggest that fondness for milk may be a contributing factor to the development of cataracts.
