Those ads you see touting dairy for weight loss are "misleading," according to a review of scientific literature published in nutrition reviews.

The review shows that neither diary products in general nor calcium intake promote weight loss.

Researchers believe any association between dairy intake and weight loss may be due to other factors such as increased exercise or cutting back on high-calorie foods.
