The animal protein in milk makes blood acidic. When milk is consumed, the human body pulls calcium from the bones to neutralize the acidity. Thus weakening the bones and leading to osteoporosis. There is a very strong correlation between countries with high milk consumption and osteoporosis. The same is true for countries with little to no milk consumption- very low osteoporosis rates (as well as many cancers and heart diseases).

Every single study done on milk actually shows that it promotes weight gain. There is not one single documented incident where milk has aided in maintaining a healthy weight.

I LOVE milk. The funny thing is that 70 percent of the world is lactose intolerant. people who can drink milk, have a mutation.

I can give you one good reason why you SHOULDN'T love milk. It's not for human consumption. It's milk for the baby calf. Not real hard to understand.
