    No ickier to me than eggs, shrimp, lobster, beef, pork, or anything else. Eggs are actually much weirder than milk.

    Milk actually helps you lose weight. It does NOT cause cancer, and it can actually reduce your diabetes risk.

    Myths like that are what causes our dairy farmers to struggle.

    It's not weird. It's healthy. People have drunk the milk of other mammals since they figured out how to get it out of them. There is a reason they have been doing it for so long!

    Health benefits of milk

    Obesity

    Contrary to popular belief, research has shown that people who consume milk and dairy foods are likely to be slimmer than those who do not.

    Studies have also shown that consumption of milk and dairy foods as part of a calorie controlled diet is associated with increased weight loss, particularly form the abdomen.

    This is particularly beneficial since excess fat around the trunk region of the body is associated with greater risks to health.

    The precise mechanisms involved are unclear but are likely to involve calcium which is found in milk and dairy foods.


    Type 2 diabetes

    Studies suggest that regular consumption of low fat dairy products can help to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, which has been a longstanding problem in adults, and is becoming increasingly common in children and adolescents.

    A recent study of more than 37,000 middle aged women found that those with the highest intakes of dairy had a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.

    The strongest association was found with low fat dairy products.

    Similarly a study of men in 2005 found a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes with increased consumption of low fat dairy, interestingly, every extra portion of dairy consumed was associated with increasingly lower risk.

    It is thought that this effect may be due to the combined effects of many beneficial nutrients found within dairy foods including calcium and magnesium, or the fact that dairy foods have a low glycaemic index, which helps to control blood sugar levels.

    Cancer

    There is considerable evidence to suggest that milk has a protective effect on risk of both colorectal and breast cancer with increased intakes.

    A recent study of 45,000 Swedish men reported that men who drank 1.5 glasses of milk per day or more, had 35% lower risk of the disease than those who had a low milk intake of less than 2 glasses per week.

    Additionally a study of over 40,000 Norwegian women found that those who drank milk as children and continued to do so as adults, had a lower risk of developing breast cancer.

    Calcium and a naturally occurring fat in dairy products known as Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) have been suggested as protective components in colon cancer.

    Yeah, I strongly disagree and feel that drinking the milk of animals who are fed synthetic estrogens to keep them artificially lactating is really abnormal and unhealthy.....,,and would especially disagree with the consumption of low fat or fat free milk.......... And I've never had a weight problem. The dairy council is a powerful one and lots of people buy their propaganda- but it's easy to look at cultures who don't drink milk and debunk their lies. I don't care enough to debate it with you however as living the results and seeing the results with my three healthy kids is good enough for me. Everyone should drink whatever pleases them, the proof is in the pudding (hahahahaha, pudding )

    Seriously, one person and their kids doing ok without is not 'proof' of anything in the pudding. I don't eat mushrooms. And neither do my kids. Saying that we are all healthy doesn't prove that mushrooms are horrible for you. I'm glad you and yours are healthy. I just hate to see rumors and lies spread that hurt our dairy farmers, and apparently (according to the plethora of sites and studies out there), peoples' health.

    Tangent....I think the reason why I haven't lost a gosh darned pound since I stopped drinking milk is because I make it all up in cheese that's virtually lactose free. Stupid cheese. Though, it is my most favorite food in the whole world and I will not give it up 100%. No way. Anything that's aged or hard is okay. Brie....beautiful. Gorgonzola, extra old cheddar, parm-reggiano, smoked gouda, stilton... I'm having a Homer Simpson drool moment right now. The only cheese I can't stand is Roquefort. Gag.

    I hate milk. Not because I have anything against it's health benefits or anything (I really haven't researched it much) but just because I find it incredibly weird and gross. I do like cheese, but plain milk and even yogurt really kind of gross me out. We do keep it in the house though for cooking and because DH and T both eat it on their cereal. We wouldn't suffer too much if dairy doubled in price just because I think we go through less than 1 thing of milk per week. None of us drinks it by the glass except on the rare occasion when DH or T has it with a rich dessert (we also don't usually do dessert.)

    I find yogurt REALLY gross but I bake with it all the time! I hate eating it plain but I swap it out for butter or oil or applesauce in recipes and it makes everything fluffy and delicious.

    I don't really drink milk either, but the kids do, and they love yogurt, cheese, etc. We all love ice cream.

    I miss ice cream. Instant cramps. Oh well. I have found a really yummy lactose free vanilla yogurt, also comes plain, and I cook with it a lot.
