Mills Upsets Dairy Council
Sir Paul McCartney's estranged wife Heather Mills is facing possible court action after slamming Britain's National Dairy Council in an interview. The former model and animal rights activist voiced her furious opinions in this month's (AUG06) Allergy magazine, accusing the organisation of trying to cover up the link between cancer and dairy products. Vegan Mills says, "The dairy council is currently quoting one scientific review that shows no increased risk of breast cancer from eating dairy products, but they might even protect against it. In fact it clearly says that some dairy products may increase the risk of cancer. "It simply ignored the bits it didn't like and misquoted the others." The NDC are furious at Mills' potentially libellous claims, saying, "We've contacted the magazine and they've agreed to print a strong letter in the next edition."
