To the Editor: Recent media reports have claimed numerous health benefits for A2 milk1,2 (eg, “new wave milk”, “wonder milk”). It is becoming more widely available, particularly in health food shops, and is advertised on Queensland television. We believe it is important to offer clear information about this product and cows’ milk allergy.
