While cow's milk is ideal food for calves, it is not good food at all for human beings. The consumption of cow's milk and other dairy products is a major contributor to a host of common illnesses. Milk clogs up your digestive system with mucus which coats the stomach and the intestinal walls and interferes with your ability to digest and absorb nutrients. It cause congestions throughout the body and aggravates the whole system, it causes skin problems, constipation, and is a probable contributor to a number of forms of cancer. The milk that is commercially sold is also full of hormones and chemical additives which are very bad for you.
The reason you hear about how great it is to drink milk all the time is simple. There's a gigantic dairy industry out there that wants you to drink the stuff, and they pay for the advertising that you here and see, even going to schools to propagandize children into drinking more milk every day of their lives.
Yuck. I can't stand milk, I have not been able to stomach it since I was 6 or 7, and I have no intention of drinking it. As for cheese...yeah, it tastes great, but I have found few other things that clog up my eliminative system as badly as a large amount of cheese does, so I eat very little cheese now.
This will sound like heresy to many of you. Fine. ;-) I will not be surprised by such a reaction, because people are creatures of convention and habit. They defend whatever they take for granted, and whatever they have been told.
