Do i have to drink milk?!

Question: Do i have to drink milk!?
i dont like it!. i like water better!. last time i drink milk was probably 8yrs ago!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Not at all!. If you think about it its really unnatural to be drinking milk from another animal!. Most of the push to drink milk is propaganda and wives tales!. Heres some info, in a condensed form, which might help:

"Besides humans, no species drinks milk beyond infancy or drinks the milk of another species!. Cow’s milk is suited to the nutritional needs of calves, who have four stomachs and gain hundreds of pounds in a matter of months, sometimes weighing more than 1,000 pounds before they are 2 years old!.(27)

Cow’s milk is the number one cause of food allergies among infants and children, according to the American Gastroenterological Association!.!.!. A U!.K!. study showed that people who suffered from irregular heartbeats, asthma, headaches, fatigue, and digestive problems “showed marked and often complete improvements in their health after cutting milk from their diets!.”(32)

Although American women consume tremendous amounts of calcium, their rates of osteoporosis are among the highest in the world!. Conversely, Chinese people consume half as much calcium (most of it from plant sources) and have very low incidence of the bone disease!.(33) Medical studies indicate that rather than preventing the disease, milk may actually increase women’s risk of getting osteoporosis!.

Humans can get all the protein that they need from nuts, seeds, yeast, grains, beans, and other legumes!. It’s very difficult not to get enough calories from protein when you eat a healthy diet; protein deficiency (also known as kwashiorkor) is very rare in the United States and is usually only a problem for people who live in famine-stricken countries!.(36) Consumption of excessive protein from dairy products, eggs, and meat has been linked to the formation of kidney stones and has been associated with colon cancer and liver cancer!.(37,38) It’s also suspected that consuming too much protein puts a strain on the kidneys, which compensate by leeching calcium from the bones!.(39)"

Really the choice is up to you!. Do the search, be informed and you can't go wrong!. You have managed to survive 8 years without it so i really don't think you have anything to worry about :)Www@FoodAQ@Com
