Here is some great information about Milk...as per Dr. Kradjian,
MILK does NOT do a BODY good..
Please read and decide for yourself.
It has been my understanding for many years now, that cows milk is not for human consumption, but rather..for a calf to fatten up to 400lbs in less that a year..

THE MILK LETTER : A MESSAGE TO MY PATIENTS Robert M. Kradjian, MD Breast Surgery Chief Division of General Surgery, Seton Medical Centre #302 - 1800 Sullivan Ave. Daly City, CA 94015 USA "MILK" Just the word itself sounds comforting! "How about a nice cup of milk?"
The last time you heard that question it was from someone who cared for you--and you appreciated their effort. The entire matter of food and especially that of milk is surrounded with
emotional and cultural importance. Milk was our very first food. If we were fortunate it was our mother's milk. A loving link, given and taken.
It was the only path to survival. If not mother's milk it was cow's milk or soy milk "formula"--rarely it was goat, camel or water buffalo milk. ... http://www.notmilk.com/kradjian.html <to read full article, click here.
SUMMARY To my thinking, there is only one valid reason to drink milk or use milk products. That is just because we simply want to. Because we like it and because it has become a part of our culture. Because we have become accustomed to its taste and texture. Because we like the way it slides down our throat. Because our parents did the very best they could for us and provided milk in our earliest training and conditioning. They taught us to like it. And then probably the very best reason is ice cream! I've heard it described "to die for". I had one patient who did exactly that. He had no obvious vices. He didn't smoke or drink, he didn't eat meat, his diet and lifestyle was nearly a perfectly health promoting one; but he had a passion. You guessed it, he loved rich ice cream. A pint of the richest would be a lean day's ration for him. On many occasions he would eat an entire quart -and yes there were some cookies and other pastries. Good ice cream deserves this after all. He seemed to be in good health despite some expected "middle age spread" when he had a devastating stroke which left him paralyzed, miserable and helpless, and he had additional strokes and died several years later never having left a hospital or rehabilitation unit. Was he old? I don't think so. He was in his 50s. So don't drink milk for health. ................ Most of the people on this planet live very healthfully without cows' milk.
You can too. It will be difficult to change; we've been conditioned since childhood to think
of milk as "nature's most perfect food." I'll guarantee you that it will be safe, improve your health and it won't cost anything. What can you lose? (Article courtesty of Dr. Kradjian and
