    I always thought milk was nasty no matter the flavor

    Yep this basically

    I do drink almond / coconut milk with my cereal in the morning

    so no cheese or ice cream? sad

    Oh I do have cheese. I was eating goat cheese in my salad as I answered this post. :)

    But goat's milk is free from pus. Good to know.

    Or maybe the pus in goat cheese isn't gross. Much more tasty pus and good to eat. Mmmmmmm, who doesn't love the taste of goat pus?

    Clearly. If it were gross, it would have two s's just like gross. Cow's milk has puss, goat's milk has pus.

    Things I learned today:
    Milk isn't meant for humans to drink but apparently everything else is okay.
    Milk has pus, except it doesn't.
    Pus is only gross until you pasteurize it.

    Yep. That's what I got too... I still want to know for those who won't drink milk because it's meant for baby cows, if they have eliminated butter, cheese, ice cream, etc. as well.

    Milk produced in any dairy has pus in it - google it! (pus is masked under the lingo 'somatic cells')

    PETA propaganda........

    Well I got that extremely well built talking rats are a lot more judgmental then they should be. Considering they are rats and all.

    Also, goats milk has less pus because goats milk is more of a specialty product. So more care is taken with individual animals. Cows are often milked in bad conditions with infected udders on huge farms and that's where you have trouble.

    LOL this thread is funny. I'll continue enjoying my puss-filled baby cow juice shake I made. It's minty and green.

    I don't eat things that you would typically accompany with milk, and when I do I substitute it for almond milk (I like the taste of almond milk over cow milk, and I'm also lactose intolerant).

    Someone earlier made a good Case for why this is not happening. Do you have anything to back that up?

    I have heard that drinking milk leads to loss of calcium from bones leading to osteoporosis, a few times lately.

    Is this even remotely true.

    I realise I'm only one person but according to a dexa scan my bone density is very high which means I'm all good calcium wise right?

    But I drink a lot of milk. Less lately, but growing up at a guess I would drink/eat about a litre of milk a day maybe more, just about every day, on weetbix, with milo, just straight.

    Am I an anomaly where milk consumption hasn't stripped my bones of calcium or is this claim just something vegans tell their kids when they misbehave :tongue:
    Do you walk or lift for exercise? Weight bearing exercise is good for the bones.

    Does being obese for most of your life count as weight lifting?

    Cause no I did lift weights or run or walk heaps.

    I use it in cooking or in my coffee but to drink a pint glass like I used to is too many calories for me. I would rather eat my calories in the case of milk. I do still consume dairy products like cheese and yogurt though.

    Such an odd thread.

    Also goat milk is less pus than cows milk and is perfectly acceptable for humans to eat even though we are not goats.

    Personally I like strained Greek yogurt. For me, more "nutritional bang for my buck." An 8 oz serving of 2% yogurt has over 20 grams of protein and 170 calories. I feel more satisfied eating the yogurt than drinking a glass of milk. But hey, that's just me. :)

    I like to get my milk through cheese and ice cream.

    Otherwise, I've pretty much eliminated liquid calories as they are an easy target to cut out. I also have a feeling that since I've only read page 1 that the other 6 pages are no longer about the original topic :smile:

    You know how I know you've never been to a dairy operation? Or know anything about the care of dairy cows?

    Fun fact: You mistreat a dairy cow and they'll stop producing milk or the milk will taste off due to the stress hormones affecting the taste. Dairy cattle are routinely some of the most pampered agricultural animals. It's in the farmers best interest to take great care of those animals.

    But you aren't interested in that. You saw one bit of baseless propaganda once and have been doggedly spreading the misinformation ever since.

    Also, your "specialty" animals aren't being treated any better or worse. So please feel free to stop feeling special about your dairy choices.

    So what you're saying is that, as an African American male, I should give goat's milk and it's pus a try, since we all know I don't eat puss?

    And goat pus isn't gross.
