We were told that the milk is a rich source of calcium and vitamin D, and it is very healty to drink milk, but apparently the milk is not good for our health.

Humans seems to be the only mammals that drink milk after infancy, and definitely the only species that drinks another species’ milk. Cow’s milk is not designed for human consumption.

Calves are about 100 pounds at birth and almost 8 to 10 times heavier by the time they are weaned. So why is it that humans feel the need to continue drinking milk after they are weaned from breast milk? Human milk is very different in composition from cow’s milk or goat’s milk or any other mammal’s milk.

Namely, the human body cannot absorb the calcium well from the milk as it does from the plants.

Milk also raises the risk of other health issues and some of them are:

1. Cholesterol
Unlike vegan foods, which are cholesterol-free, one milk serving has 24 mg of cholesterol.

2. Lactose intolerance
Cow’s milk has sugar known as lactose, which might be hard to digest and leads to nausea, diarrhea, cramps, and bloating.

3. Broken bones
A Swedish medical study has shown that women who consume much dairy milk are more susceptible to fractures than those who drank less or no milk.

4. Prostate cancer
Studies have shown that the consumption of milk and other dairy products raise the risk of prostate cancer, and diets which are milk-free slow down its progress.

So at the end consider your habit of drinking milk!
