The milk of the cow is most widely used by humans, but the milk of the mare, goat, ewe, buffalo, camel, zebra, reindeer, llama, and yak is also used. Kids and people drink milk from ancient times. And seems that was good for everybody, i don t saw until now a kid who don t drink milk. But seems that every day we find new answers, new ideas, people who come and say that milk is not good for health... http://www.bbsradio.com/cgi-bin/webbbs_old/webbbs_config.pl/noframes/read/4833 I read here opinion about to drink or not to drink milk. How can milk bad for our health? i can t understand this,...we eat ice cream, we eat cheese, we eat cookies, we eat everyday something who have in composition milk...what we must to do now?Must don t drink milk any more?In my opinion soon, we will not eating any more food..because seems that all foods are not good for heath.

milk can be harmful because it contains hormones. many cows are fed antibiotics and hormones and all these get into milk that we drink. even if they are not fed all these things, they produce hormones anyway. Human body has a very sensitive system controled by hormons, if there are any hormons that are not supposed to be there, it can throw off the balance. If you love foods made of milk, you should be able to find substitutes made from plant sources. there is oat milk, soy milk, rice milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, almond milk and much more. you can find vegan cheese that has no milk and coconut milk is to kill for. coconut ice cream taste very good and is very healthy as it has all the minerals you need.

I think milk is good for us because regular intake of milk can help make our bones and teeth stronger and can help us prevent having osteoporosis when we reach old age. I can say that too much of something is really bad so we need to drink the right amount of milk only and need to choose the milk that we drink.

Yes, I really think so. I think drink milk is really good for our health, and maybe drink some kind of milk could even help you to lose fat, though I do not know whether this is true. I love to drink milk, I think it is really delicious and I am very happy with milk.

In theory semi skimmed is better for you as it is lower in fat, and as you drink a quite lot of milk it would be probably be as sensible switch, but the other hand normal milk tastes better.. Either type of milk is very good for bone density (strong bones, preventing diseases like rickets) These days young people in the UK are estimated to have worse bone density than past generations, for lack of calcium and dislike of allergy to dairy products, or financial hardships and rising prices of basic items are not

If I was going to pay attention to all new things people say about any food, I would be eating nothing right now. Myself I find that most things are ok when eating/drinking then in moderation. Unless a person is lactose intolerant, there is no harm in drinking milk as long as it's not in extremes. On the other hand it does not seem to be essential either, mostly because people might not drink milk but have some cheese, or yogurt etc. I enjoy having a glass of milk occasionally. My son loves to drink milk and has milk each day. My daughter never drinks it. It doesn't really seem to matter. As for the article.... I don't really pay much attention to those. One day it's because pasta is very good for us.. some months later, it's because pasta is a carbohydrate and we should avoid it. The next coffee is bad... then it's good.... then it's bad again. Fish is good... then it's bad..... We can find a study condemning anything and another praising it. It depends on so many things.... Milk has vitamins and nutrients that are important.It can also have hormones that can affect us, or create problems for someone that is lactose intolerant. In the end, each one of us knows better what works with us or not.

Milk was one of the most important provider on our dinning table.After it was gratuately discovered ,more and more scientists believe it is a healthy food.It will provide enought protein but not saturated fat as meat does,which is good for our heart.Some also claimed its anti-cancer benefit.

hello icesmile, Just like you I'm also confused about your concern. I used to know and believe that milk is really good for our health. But when one of my friends forward me something in my email telling that milk is not good to our health for it is one cause of cancer. Then I was alarmed since almost everything that we are eating has milk content. It's really hard since having such sickness is even harder. Really bothered about this.

I would say that it goodness of milk for our health would depend from where it came from... and if our body can tolerate it... for example... you can be allergic to milk but can tolerate soya... thats milk to but no lactose... Also you can have milk from the resent issue in china milk and that will be bad for you... Maybe it would be best that we are aware of what type of milk it is so we can be sure that it will be healthy..

Man is the only animal that drinks milk from his birth to his grave.I dont know whether milk is healthy for the human or not, but surely it is not healthy for the poor animals which is denied its rightful share of its mother's milk.

Ok I don't care what the experts say I believe milk is the reason I am here today. I was a milk junky as a child drinking almost a quart every day. I still do as an adult about 3 years ago I was involved in a car accident hit by a drunk driver doing 60mph. I suffered only ONE broken bone, the doctors said it was due to having strong healthy bones at the time of the accident say what they want I believe the milk saved my life.

well i drink milk almost everyday, and im very fit. my nails grow very long because of it, and i love milk. drinking milk for me is healthy, because im a growing person and im also very strong.... so drinking milk is probably way healthier than pop or tea.

I think it is important to drink milk, especially organic if possible. There's always someone out there telling us that what we thought was good is now bad, and there is always a resulting fad diet. People have been drinking milk for many many years and survived. When in doubt, remember the cliche: everything in moderation!

I am not a big milk fan, I just don't like the taste of it. So, I think it is ok not to drink it.

I think milk are good for health. It is always great to take different types of milk like chocolate milk, rose milk, pista milk, etc. This will helps to make a person to take milk as much as possible. I like cold milk in the form of chocolate milk or rose milk very much.
