Milk: the Utter Truth
Posted 2/17/08
Well, to put it lightly: I'm 6'6 and 16 years old.

I probably drink a gallon every two days, and I can go through an entire gallon in one day if I'm really craving it. None of my other family members are as tall as me or close to my height in the least.

I'm not certain if there is a connection in growing taller because of milk, but just throwing it out there....

Well I think milk helps to a certain degree. The only way you can build stronger bones is through strenuous activity like say iron body training such activites like iron body training puts stress on the bone which then makes it "ask" for more calcium so it can build a denser bone. The only reason parents say milk makes you taller is because even if people with the genes to be tall doesnt get enough vitamins and calcium they wont grow to be their potential height....

Oh wow that was a long one.......

I think if you like it, it's good for you. I have this theory that our taste buds work with our body in order to ensure that we'll eat those things that our body needs.

I have no basis for this theory... but I like it because it means I can eat what I like without bowing to the whims of the pyramid makers. So I blindly believe it because I want to.

And I drink milk. I think it's quite delicious.

You can't grow big and tall if you don't drink your milk.

Your penis will also never grow. *13-year-olds overdose on milk*

milkgonewild.com.
has a banned superbowl commercial on how bad milk is.
it says that milk gives you manboobs, can LEAD to osteoporoses instead of preventing it, etc.
and the commercial may be uhh, too 'hot' for some people. haha.
watch with caution.

oh yeah.
and regardless of all this info, true or not,
i still drink it. (:

I'm with your teacher on on the bone strengthening. Milk wont make your bones stronger. Comsuming lots of calcium isn't how you get stronger bones. Your bones are only as strong as they need to be, so if you sit around and don't do much, your bones wouldn't be as strong as that of say, somebody who lifts weights. You could consume mass amounts of calcium, but it would just be excess and your body wouldn't use it. As for milk being unhealthy, I find that very hard to believe. If I go a long time without drinking milk, I'll notice the difference when I go back to it. I swear I feel like a million bucks after having a good old glass of milk. But I've heard that the milk you get in bottles is of a comprimised quality. Because of all the processing they put it through. I know an old man that swears by raw milk. He says that it'll keep your teeth white and healthy. And damned if he don't have perfect teeth without a singal cavity. I don't doubt that the stuff you get at the store could have some risks, hell, who's to say it's even milk. I mean the label says milk, but you still have to believe that its really milk. They could lie and water it down or something. Milk may have alot of fat, but I think folks get caried away. There's such a thing as healthy fats.And I thought they stopped putting hormones in in the cows afew years ago, that was back in 03 I think. Bah, it could take me bit to check all this guy's facts.

Yea. lol. Looking at the arrangements of the sentences and the vocabulary, I thought you were trying hard. lol

Anyway, Milk tastes so good with certain foods. It's more of a taste balance used with other flavors for us to enjoy our meals rather than health reasons for most people. If it was for health, there would be other alternatives.

Milk is very important for us during our developmental stages. I don't even recommend skim or lowfat milk for young children since it removes some of the vital nutrients provided by whole milk. (Of course, maternal breast milk is the most important during infancy) Once you are in the late stages of your developmental stage and when your in adulthood; milk isn't really that vital since so many other sources of what we need are around. However, milk still is a provider of nutrients we require. We just have the freedom to pick where we would like our nutrients from. Milk, as well as the grain industry or any other industry will lobby for health recommendations and advertisements. Every food distribution is a business since you have to pay for it and they have to earn a living. However, it's up to us to keep ourselves educated on what we are eating each day, if we are concerned about our daily diet. Keep in mind that milk is one of the most molecularly complex substances that mammals ingest. Scientists are still researching milk to this day to know everything about it.
