In response to:

When Did Milk Become Bad for You?

attempt by your physician to find the right medicine, or combination of medicines to treat your particular condition. Just as there is no free lunch, there is no magic bullet. Having said that, I have some observations about milk. I am not aware of any other animals that consume the milk of another creature. I also note that a large portion of the world’s peoples are lactose-intolerant by ethnic division. I believe tolerance to lactose has evolved through consumption, and is not a trait that humans come by naturally. Calcium and other nutrients found in milk are indeed important. All those nutrients are available elsewhere. I tend not to drink milk myself.

I do! Barn cats drink it, so do domesticated cats, and my dog likes it too! Then there are the hogs I used to slop, and the skim milk along with a good grain was a delicious feast for them, all milk from a cow, and maybe others, who feed goats milk to others besides human. Growing up on a farm has it's benefits, but since I was one of those who milked the cows, I never really developed a taste for it except maybe some on my cereal!

" I am not aware of any other animals that consume the milk of another creature."

How is this relevant to nutrition? I am not aware of any other animals that have written languages, build skyscrapers, or communicate through radio waves. Should we also stop doing these things, and get back to nature?
Last week, as I entered Union Station Metro station in Washington, I saw ads for what appeared to be First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. It was a series of three ads, the first said: “Let’s move hot dogs out of school lunch.” Okay, fine, because, let’s face it, while hot dogs may be scrumptious and all-beef, they look like small batons of questionable meat.

The second ad said: “Let’s move cheese out of school lunch.” I mean, I guess. Cheese, while a good source of calcium (and delicious), is not necessarily the healthiest thing in the world....
