Thursday letters: Expert advice not so expert

February 27, 2014 

— In preparation for our recent ice and snow storm, The State asked for advice from two nutrition experts: a USC professor and a clinical nutrition manager at a local hospital (“Stocking up for 2nd storm? Bread’s better than milk,” Feb.11). They both advised against buying milk because it would not keep during a power outage caused by an ice storm.

We pay both of these experts for their advice. But when your house has no power in an ice storm, wouldn’t it make sense that the milk would last if it’s placed in your cold house, garage or outside?
