Milk is good for all of us. That's why doctors tell us to drink more, and that's why babies need a lot of it. Great for bones, teeth, great source of calcium which our bodies need.
People say it is good or it is bad. As with most things it is good within moderation and with all the other good foods.
I disagree, you wouldn't want a heavy metal meal, even in "moderation." Some drugs even in moderation can cause death or permanent injury.
You would be better off with some kale or collards which contain phytonutrients.
"Phytonutrients aren't essential for keeping you alive, unlike the vitamins and minerals that plant foods contain. But when you eat or drink phytonutrients, they may help prevent disease and keep your body working properly."
Yep..If needed to drink milk all our lives,it wouldn't be that we would have to get it from cows or other animals..
I've never seen any documentaries where, juvenile gorillas are chasing other animals to get milk, because they can't get it from mom anymore..
I've never seen any documentaries where gorillas are flying planes and driving cars down the road. Should we get rid of those things because other animals don't use them?
I never knew gorillas were born, equipped with planes and automobiles...
Maybe i missed that documentary too....
Even if they were, i don't remember telling anyone to get rid of milk..
I don't care if you drink 5 gallons of milk a day,it won't have anything to do with my health...
My argument is that just because humans are doing something that other animals aren't doing, doesn't make it unnatural.
Some humans like to lick ass for pleasure. We can't say thats normal or not normal by comparing the act to what some other species does.
Doesn't make it natural either..
If humans were intended to have milk all their lives and get it from other than humans..
Women wouldn't have breasts..
Licking ass for pleasure and obtaining nutrition, can hardly be compared...
Lick ass and eat nothing but Cheetos...let me know how your next checkup goes...
I know it doesn't make it natural either. But it's same logic used against homosexuality by some. Whether other animals show homosexuality tendencies or not is irrelevant to humans having those characteristics.
Perhaps we should. All that sedentary behavior is not healthy.
"The weighted evidence indicates that humans evolved in environments that required higher levels of human movement than are required today. By becoming more efficient at extracting energy from the environment, there is now a lower level of expenditure required to subsist. Some studies have documented lower levels of physical activity among contemporary humans compared with those living in more primitive societies. A negative consequence to the observed improvements in energetic efficiency is the proliferation of health concerns that are related to low levels of physical activity and/or high levels of sedentary behavior."
It probably would be healthier if we all moved back in caves..
It might happen sooner than we think..
Seems that way.
Water is great for us in most circumstances. Sure you can get water intoxication, but that is rare.
Never really drank it much,once a week if i ate cereal..
Haven't had cereal in over a year...
I agree that it's not particularly good for humans, or any creature aside from young ones, and mainly calves.
Even if I didn't care about the extreme cruelty involved in most dairy farming, I wouldn't want to be drinking the antibiotic and hormone laden product that is the result of factory farming practices.
One thing is sure....humans wanting to drink cow's milk, is definitely "detrimental" to the well-being of the cows who spend a life of suffering to provide it.
Have fun drinking milk and your new friend type I diabetes.
"Total protein consumption did not correlate with diabetes incidence (r = +0.402), but consumption of the beta-casein A1 variant did (r = +0.726). Even more pronounced was the relation between beta-casein (A1+B) consumption and diabetes (r = +0.982). These latter two cow caseins yield a bioactive peptide beta-casomorphin-7 after in vitro digestion with intestinal enzymes whereas the common A2 variant or the corresponding human or goat caseins do not. beta-casomorphin-7 has opioid properties including immunosuppression, which could account for the specificity of the relation between the consumption of some but not all beta-casein variants and diabetes incidence."
I don't see how almond milk would take more water than cow's milk. Cow's require massive amount of water.
"1 litre of milk needs 1000 litres of water."
Nutritionists are not recommending milk as a primary source of calcium. Cow's milk contains much more phosphorus than humans need. Humans have only three good sources of complete protein: eggs, milk, and meat.
This complete protein trend is nonsense. We can get all the protein we need on a plant based diet.
Sure you can. It involves an awful lot of arithmetic, because plants don't make complete protein. The human body needs eight kinds of protein in balanced proportions. If you get more of one kind than the balance requires, the excess is burned as ordinary but expensive calories.
I've never seen vegetarians worry much about protein. In fact, vegetarians tend to be healthier than non-vegetarians.
"The natural cytotoxicity of peripheral blood lymphocytes was measured using a chromium-release test. Cytotoxic activity, which is expressed as lytic units, was significantly higher in vegetarians than in their omnivorous controls by a factor of 2. The total number of white blood cells, lymphocytes, and other subpopulations did not differ between vegetarians and nonvegetarians. The enhanced natural cytotoxicity may be one of the factors contributing to the lower cancer risk shown by vegetarians."
Wait, what? You are offering academic studies to support a comment espousing ignorance. Is that correct?
They say we like cow's milk because it's the one that resembles human's milk in fat the most
