Around 80 percent of norwegians eat harmful much saturated fat, and dairy products, followed by red meat, is the main source of this. Only 15 per cent of us eat enough vegetables and fruit. We in the association Health care provider for the plant-based diet (hepla.no) believes that this is a problem, and we work for that norwegians should eat greener, and replace part of the dairy and meat with healthy plant foods: fruit and vegetables, legumes, whole grains and nuts.
It is therefore not true, so Ida Berg Hauge by meieriindustriens pr-organ milk.no suggests (DB 27/7), that we do with "scare tactics to promote a vegan diet".

Fear to get too little nutrients and get sick without cow's milk, is hardly created without the contribution from the meierireklamen.
If dairy is such a good source to iodine so Berg Hauge says, how is it that 80 per cent of Norwegian pregnant women gets too little iodine? It is only ten per cent of the norwegians who have cut out dairy products from your diet, so milk.no their surveys. The incidence of osteoporosis and related bone fractures is high in Norway, despite high intake of dairy products.Creates fear and confusion Debate
And what does it help that Berg Hauge framsnakker low-fat milk, when this is made by fat skummes from cow milk? When some choose lean dairy products, who will then eat up the fat that is left? There are probably those who listen to the milk.no, on their websites framsnakker cheese as a health food.
