    Default Does Milk do a Body Good?

    I don't wanna make this a really BIG deal. I just wanna know what other people think.

    I personally don't like milk. My parents didn't conform to the western ideal of drinking milk and neither do I.

    For years, while I was growing up, I've been told from television, education, and everyone that 'milk does a body good'. Does it really?

    It is true that there is a lot of calcium for helping bone structure, but there are other supplements that have higher concentrations of calcium besides milk.

    Just recently, I've seen an episode of friends when Phoebe was lactating and Joey drank breast milk. The whole episode focused around how freaky it was to drink breast milk.

    Well, if human breast milk is pretty gross to drink, then how does it compare to a COW's breast milk?

    I thought I'd just say this little thing. This is my opinion about milk and nothing more. Basically, the episode from friends sparked this off.

    We're used to cow's milk being pasteurized, processed and usually served cold. Human breast milk is none of these, and our perception of it is what makes it gross.

    Default Milk Is The Best

    Milk is extremely good for the body. It contains healthy amounts of calcium, protein, fats (kinds that can be beneficial to the body), and carbohydrates.

    Milk is essential for bone growth, development and maintenance. Recieving adequate amounts of milk will actually prevent "adult shrinking" (where you seem to get shorter as you age). It does this by building up strong structure around the bone marrow, and along with exercise will keep bones at their maximum size for years. Milk prevents osteoperosis, the protein goes towards muscle development, the carbs to solid long term energy.

    Since milk comes from an animal it also contains many nutrients that are beneficial to your bodies.

    Is milk good for you, for shizzo my nizzo. Many nutritionists only drink milk and water in their diets.

    Many health powders such as Protein Powders and Creatine include milk powder as part of their ingredients, because it contains pure complexed proteins that Science has trouble doubling.

    I'd write more but I'm going to get myself some milk right now.

    Milk is the best thing for you, unless the cow's are fed hormonal shit. This is the case in North America (where making more money for less work and money spent is the way) there are no, or very little organically fed cows. Whatever that cow eats, impacts you as well if you drink its milk. Drink rice milk, its got equivalent calcium, and its not horrible for you. Waaay better than soy, try vanilla 2% rice milk.

    Milk is the best drink in the history of drinks.

    I could easily pound down a 4L of 2% in a day in a half cause it's that damn good!!

    My fave drink by far and it is healthy for you as well.

    I for one am not a big fan of milk. How can it be so good for us if it wasn't even meant to be for human consumption by nature? It is meant for calves. I don't know, maybe since I don't drink milk, I will find out how it really "does the body good" in the future.

    A cup of broccoli contains as much calcium as a cup of milk.

    Dude when your "poopy" is bad from drinking milk that is a sign that you may be lactose intolerant...don't keep drinking it...you will not become immune...you will just get worse....trust me

    except for me, I didn't figure out why my stomach hurt until I heard about lactose intolerance... that was when I was 22...
