After very young age milk gives nothing special other than its taste.
Milk is not an essential food. It has special values only for TV ads making people.
My first child refused drinking cows milk. After a difficult time with infant formula we gradually changed to rice. We gave few tablespoonfuls of thick blended red rice instead of 'piti kiri'.
Throughout the schooling days it continued that way. Now ,she is in the final year Uni of CMB.
Milk is worth until we can get it cheaper than other meals. In villages cow gives free milk , cheaper than rice.
Now, we pay unrealistic price for it .
400gm pack is 320/-
It has 100g of protein, 152 gm of cabo and 104 g of fat.
For each 100grams we pay 80/- Rupees.
If you take boiled red rice, the cost of 100 grams is Rs. 4.50
For Each 100 g it has 8 g of protein, 77g of cabo and 3 g of fat.
8% is the required amount of protein for humans .
Most dangerous is Non Fat milk. Elderly people take it as a healthy food for them than Full cream. Non Fat has higher percentage of protein . It can produce life threatening mucus in the lungs .
WHY DO DAIRY PRODUCTS CAUSE ASTHMA?
Eighty percent of milk protein is CASEIN, the same glue used
to hold together wood in furniture. Casein is also the glue
used to affix a label to a bottle of beer. Eat casein and
you produce histamines. Histamines result in mucus. Mucus
makes breathing difficult. Thousands of children die,
primarily African-Americans. Many deaths are misdiagnosed,
called congestive heart failure.
