Mark Sisson's thoughts about it: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/dairy-intolerance/ (wfs)

See the paragraph entitled 'Cancer'.

Re: Dairy Protein - Prostate Cancer Risk

Sisson himslef cites a study that the cancer risk is higher when the protein is separated from the fat. That would suggest whey protein would pose a risk, and Sisson is a big proponent of whey I believe.

Also Sisson's article was from January of this year; the Cordain et al article was completed 7 months later in August.

I have been taking whey pre and post workout for years and am just wondering if I should stop.

So many studies; seems like any hypothesis can be 'proved.'

Re: Dairy Protein - Prostate Cancer Risk

Then there are people like Dr. Campbell who think any animal consumption increases cancer. Take you pick.

Doesn't Cordain also argue in his Paleo for Athletes book that dairy products cause an acid imbalance?

The dairy and acid balance stuff is usually relating to mineral deposition. The idea is that increased body acidity causes minerals, such as calcium, to be leeched instead of deposited so that dairy is actually bad for bone health. Haven't done any real research into his claims, but I know that some countries with low dairy intake, like Japan, also have low hip fracture rates, indicating that--at the very least--dairy is not necessary to prevent osteoporosis.
