Since finding out I was casein intolerance, I have been interested in the different types of milk available. Here is an excellent Squidoo lens on the good, bad and ugly about milk
Is cow’s milk an appropriate food for humans?
Many people still consume substantial amounts of dairy products and government policies still promote them, despite scientific evidence that questions their health benefits and indicates their potential health risks.
Cow’s milk is the number one allergic food in the country. It has been well documented as the cause in diarrhea, constipation, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency anemia, eczema, asthma, acne, fatigue, sinus and ear infections.
Personally, I prefer Coconut milk — the kind you find in the dairy case next to the cow’s milk. My husband likes Hemp milk and coconut milk. Sometimes we make our own milk from nuts. What about you?
