bullshit milk is good for you it has calcium and vitamin D and if youre tryna get big like bulk up milk helps a lot trust me im in the field
American women are the highest consumers of calcium, yet they have the highest rates of Osteoporosis (even though by nature they should 1/3 of a likelihood of developing Osteoporosis compared to males).
The pattern of diet and fractures in other parts of the world is equally revealing. Most Chinese people eat and drink no dairy products, and get all their calcium from vegetables. Yet while they consume only half the calcium of Americans, osteoporosis is uncommon in China, despite an average life expectancy of 70. In South Africa, Bantu women who eat mostly plant protein and only 200-350mg of calcium a day have virtually no osteoporosis, despite bearing on average six children and breastfeeding for prolonged periods. Their African-American brothers and sisters, who ingest on average more than 1,000mg of calcium a day, are nine times more likely to experience hip fractures. Campbell puts it unequivocally: "The association between the intake of animal protein and fracture rates appears to be as strong as that between cigarette smoking and lung cancer."
No I will not trust your ignorance over facts.
This isn't a matter of needing things. This is a matter of pleasure. We don't need to wear clothes all year either, but we do. We don't need to have sex without procreation but we do... I haven't been won over by either side. You see, I prefer to not pick sides when it comes to these types of things because I'm not a fuckin' scientist. Not only that, but I can't predict the future either.
All that aside your average milk drinker is still outliving the natural world's human life span. I think we'll be okay if not everyone makes it over 50.
Going back to point of this thread, no milk is not good for you. So argue about pleasure all you want. People shoot up heroin for pleasure... doesn't mean it's good for you.
- You can easily consume more calcium than your body can digest, which will lead to Osteoporosis. About 45ish million Americans have low bone density despite the widespread consumption of dairy products.
- Humans aren't built to consume lactose, and the consumption of it irritates our sinus cavity to where it causes inflammation and over-production of mucus.
- Milk of any animal is not meant to be digested beyond the age of 3; even though a small percentage of human adults have a small amount of lactase enzymes in their digestive systems, our digestive system would prefer not to have to digest it.
- Half of all iron deficiency in US infants results from cows milk-induced intestinal bleeding.
The anti-milk lobby also claims that consumption of dairy products can aggravate rheumatoid arthritis and has been implicated in colic, acne, heart disease, asthma, lymphoma, ovarian cancer and multiple sclerosis. Major studies suggesting a link between milk and prostate cancer have been appearing since the 1970s, culminating in findings by the Harvard School of Public Health in 2000 that men who consumed two and a half servings of dairy products a day had a third greater risk of getting prostate cancer than those who ate less than half a serving a day. In the same year, T Colin Campbell, the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, said that "cows' milk protein may be the single most significant chemical carcinogen to which humans are exposed".
I understand that you are a product of your environment and that you have been told, I mean sold your whole life that milk is good for you and that it's engraved in your mind. The longer that it has been branded in your mind, the harder it is going to be for you to stop being stubborn and open your eyes to the truth. Or some of you love your taste buds more than your organs so you're going to choose the pleasure of drinking milk over the health of your human body.
Of course the milk industry isn't going to pay a lot of money advertising how milk is bad for you, that's why you only hear the good sides of milk. Since you guys never did any research on your own, you never learned the facts about the milk of another animal and what it does if we put it in our stomach.
Bottom line, the human body is better off without the consumption of a cow's milk.
