I've been concerned about the health of dairy products for a while. Until I remarried, our dairy intake stayed pretty low. However, hubby loves ice cream. Son loves milk milk milk. Youngest loves yogurt and such. We've limited the two youngest on dairy, but they take it at school and other places even if we ask them not too. The school told me they're required to put it on their trays and take it with them, although they are allowed to throw it away. They just won't. We're considering getting a doctor's note, except they don't have a medical reason we can point to apart from us knowing they have better behavior and less constipation without it. From what I've been reading lately, milk isn't good for ANYONE. Cow milk is for baby cows and I've read humans can't digest it properly. I've had doctors tell me it's the toughest thing for the human body to digest. I've read that we stop having the ability to properly process it in a semi-decent manner around weaning age. I'd love to go dairy free, but I'm going to need some help convincing people of this. So what do you think? Do you have any information that accurately portrays the pros and cons of humans consuming dairy products that come from animals?
