The long view: Descendants of ND’s early Muslim Immigrants

North Dakota’s early wave of Arab immigrants came from what is now Lebanon, said William Sherman, a retired priest and sociologist who’s researched the topic.

The Swedish study asked 100,000 people about their dietary habits – a very decent sample size for a study like this – and found that women who drink three or more glasses of milk a day (680ml) were twice as likely to die in the period studied than were women who drank a more normal amount. That’s a very significant finding, and a dramatic change in mortality rates, but it should be treated with a little care. MORE  telegraph.co.uk
