Both the "common knowledge" and a good deal of medically sound research show that although milk is a major requirement for children and youths, cow's milk is extremely difficult to digest for adult humans. In fact, because it so difficult to digest, cow's milk may actually be harmful to us. Despite that, American adults continue to consume milk at an extraordinary pace, in fact Americans consuming more milk than all of the adults in the rest of the world combined.
We are not talking about milk as used to cook or make sauces, nor in ice cream, nor in dairy products such as cheese. What we are talking about is taking milk by the large glassful – with breakfast, with snacks, with lunch and sometimes even with and after dinner.
What about us. How often do we drink cow's milk? And if you do drink it, how do you like it (warm, hot, chilled, ice-cold,) and when do you like it? Any dishes with which a glass of milk especially beckons?
Oh yes…..and any thought about the milk of goats, sheep, camels or other mammals?
