Yogurt over milk, please
So this article isn't necessarily CF specific, other than the fact that as CFer's age it's super important to avoid cancer so we can get a tx when the time comes (have to be cancer free for 5 years to get a tx at most centers).
I myself have replaced all the milk I drink with organic, plain (no sugar) yogurt mostly for the pro-biotic reasons (so many abx, so many yeast infections!!!). I mix my yogurt in my cereal and sprinkle a bit of honey to make it sweet (honey is one of the best sweetners).
But this article points out another reason why milk is really meant for children of breast-feeding age, not adults. I have a feeling organic milk is better than traditional, but there's still properties of organic milk that might not be so wonderful. Check it out....
