Milk/Dairy Products can help prevent the following:

Tumors, Malignant

Colon Cancer

A long-term high consumption of milk, but not calcium, vitamin D or fermented milk, was associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer in a study of 9,959 men and women aged 15 years or older without history of cancer at baseline who were
followed for 24 years.  [Eur J Clin Nutr 2001, 55(11): pp.1000-7]

In contrast, a massive 2003 study (almost 150,000 subjects) found that increased calcium and vitamin D intake (from supplements) was probably responsible for reduced risk of this cancer [American Journal of Epidemiology 158 (2003): p.621].  Dairy products were found NOT to be protective [Cancer Causes Control 14 (2003): p.1].  Bearing in mind the other negative aspects of dairy product consumption, using multiple vitamin supplements instead may be the better choice.
