on dairy and cramps

I read something a few days ago that said that cutting down on your consumption of meat and dairy can reduce the severity of your menstrual cramps. Today it occurred to me that perhaps the reason why i never had cramps when i was at school but have had them (albeit mildly) this summer is because i consume much less dairy when i’m at school than i do when i’m at home. (At school i have juice with meals and lots of water and tea, whereas at home i have much more milk. I also have cereal with milk every morning at home whereas at school it’s a bagel and juice. I think my ice cream consumption is fairly high both places, though, so now i’m not so sure it could make much of a difference.)
