As long as you don't have a known intolerance to it, then cows milk is not bad for you-but it's certainly not good either! Milk is a food designed for new born animals, with poorly functioning, under-developed gastrointestinal tracts. You're an adult, so why eat baby food? Do you know what milk actually is? Well, milk glands (mammary tissue) are modified sweat glands! Think about it!jake wrote:Why isn't it good for me? If I don't have a milk intolerance can I still drink it?
Apparently as much as 60% of Afrocaribean and South East Asian people have some degree of milk intolerance that may or may not produce overt symptoms in them! The figure is lower in Western people-but i'm not sure hwat it is.
