For 40 years, we've been told to stay away from whole milk in favor of low-fat milk.

But, now that advice is under fire.

Studies have shown that people who consumed more milk fat had less heart disease, not more, as government diet experts have said.

Critics say the shunning of whole milk caused many to turn away from milk entirely, in favor of drinks loaded with carbs and sugar.

The shift in thinking is a hot topic in Washington, as dietary guidelines are being revised.
