This podcast from Robb Wolf clears up many questions I get about dairy. This is the iTunes podcast link. The first 10-12 minutes of the 12/8 episode is very informational.
or you can get it straight from his site.

In a nutshell……dairy makes you grow! (good if your a body builder or underweight athlete  but bad if you have pre cancerous cells)If you are trying to lose bodyfat and/or have ANY autoimmune disease you want to stay away from dairy. If you are trying to “get big”and are healthy already….some dairy consumption would help. Raw milk and grass fed dairy would be best as it is full of Omega 3’s.(we need MORE Omega 3’s to help fight the 20:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio our country has developed) Dairy does give you an insulin spike! You have to use it wisely.

My son’s Collin (age 7 w/autism) and Ryan (age 3 and typical) have never been able to tolerate dairy. Collin has been on the gfcf diet since age 20 months.  Ryan  always threw up and never slept or felt good when I breast fed him (I ate and drank dairy) and/or when he took  formula as a baby. It was not until he switched to soy that he calmed down. The day we started Collin on the gfcf diet he slept through the night after MONTHS of not sleeping well or even waking up at like 1:30am FOR THE DAY! It was crazy!
