Believe it or not but your glass of milk contains a cocktail of 20 chemicals! Yes, you heard it right. If findings of a new study are to be believed, the glass of milk you drink daily can contain traces of chemicals used in various painkillers and antibiotics.
Are you a strict vegetarian? If so, you could be at a greater risk of getting a stroke or a heart attack, according to a study. The findings have been published in ACS' 'Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.'
Maidstone, England -- Workers at a British farm said cows exposed to a theater group performing renditions of a Shakespeare play increased milk production by 4 percent.

Stockholm, Sweden -- A Swedish man who spent months attempting to pump milk from his breasts has given up on the failed attempt, his observers said.
Magnus Talib, a member of the editorial team for TV show Aschberg, which has been observing the progress of "Milkman" Ragnar Bengtsson, 26, said the young father's daily three-hour breast pumping failed to produce any milk, The Local reported Tuesday.
"All he got was sore breasts," Talib said of Bengtsson's attempt, which began in September.
However, Talib said Bengtsson has another perk coming from his project -- he is flying to the United States this week to film an appearance on "The Tyra Banks Show."
Sydney, June 30: Skim milk helps people feel full, thanks to its high protein content, lactose sugar and its thickness.
Researchers found that drinking fat free milk in the morning helped increase satiety and led to decreased calorie intake at the next meal, compared to a fruit drink. Those who drank milk ate about 50 fewer calories (or nearly nine percent less food) at lunch.
In the study, 34 overweight but otherwise healthy men and women participated in two testing sessions - one in which they were served about 20 ounces of fat free milk, and one in which they were served the same quantity of a fruit drink (each contributing 250 calories to their breakfast).

Ottawa -- Canadian health officials are warning people allergic to egg, milk, peanut, seafood, sesame, soy or tree nuts not to consume Orion- and Lotte-brand biscuits.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said the biscuits, manufactured in South Korea, contain allergens that aren't declared on the label. Officials noted that on packages of recalled biscuits, the brand name Orion or Lotte is printed only in the Korean language.
The CFIA said the biscuits are known to have been distributed in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan but might have been distributed nationally.
Officials said consumption of the products might cause a serious or life-threatening reaction in people with allergies to egg, milk, peanut, seafood, sesame, soy or tree nuts.
