Thread: Should humans drink cow's milk?

  1. #1

    Should humans drink cow's milk?

    At the risk of having dual "milk" threads, this is a question I wonder about.
    Why and how did this custom start, and is it good for adult humans to drink cow's milk.
    I personally like milk but only drink fat free which is like white water.

    Anyway it's a poll so please vote.

    Well, it is bizarre but cow milk seems to work best. For coffee, chocolate milk, oreo's etc.

    1% or 2% is what we drink. Fat free milk that stuff is awful.

    Would you drink human milk? We know it was made for humans.

    Yes, I insist on the fat-free variety too.

    With one of these poured into it:

    Milk is not just milk. The milk of every species of mammal
    is unique and specifically tailored to the requirements of
    that animal. For example, cows' milk is very much richer in
    protein than human milk. Three to four times as much. It has
    five to seven times the mineral content. However, it is
    markedly deficient in essential fatty acids when compared to
    human mothers' milk. Mothers' milk has six to ten times as
    much of the essential fatty acids, especially linoleic acid.
    (Incidentally, skimmed cow's milk has no linoleic acid). It
    simply is not designed for humans.

    But how can something that tastes so right be so wrong?

    Many things feel pleasurable to the senses, it doesn't mean they should be experienced.

    I heard that humans unlike many other animals can and will eat just about anything and being able to drink milk is a form of natural selection. People who are lactose-intolerant do not posess the mutated gene. People who could drink milk were able to live longer perhaps because they had more to eat (drink) and would not have starved as quickly. I just heard that somewhere I don't know anything about its credibility.

    That is true. It would have been an advantage, given the domestication of animals, to exploit their millk as a food source.

    I like whole milk. Human milk tastes like cantalope juice. It doesn't taste bad, but I think too much would make you sick, its really rich.

    Many societies of humans have adapted to animal milk in their diet, this is why there are lactase persistent people and why they correlate with societies that have drunk milk for hundreds and thousands of years.

    Thanks yo everyone for voting!
    If you haven't yet, it's 50/50 and we need a tie breaker.

    So while we're here maybe the resident nutritionist could tell us about the things humans add to milk (or leave in, ie: puss,etc.)

    SAM! Are you out there?
