I used to take milk evey morning myself- the Super Skim milk that tastes like whole milk- but isnt.
After posts in Curezone enlightened me-- as well as other websites and doing research, I realized that milk isnt as healthy as we think with all the things they do to the cows - and the artificial hormones in the milk.
If your'e lucky to get truly organic milk -like they did over a hundred years ago- with all the milk fats,- I bet only one cup of that would be enough to nourish a person for a week- and build great bones in children-- if drunken right from the cow and not given time to stagnate or needing to be refined. I think the problem is in today's milk processing that practically makes milk toxic and creates mucous in humans.
I've gone off diary because of this- but compensate with making sure I get plenty of plant based calcium, Vitamin D, Maganese, etc., daily- and I noticed my fingernails are growing in very thickly now-- and I have no menstrual cramps. When I drank milk, my fingernails still split alot-- now they are very thick-- go figure!
