If they did put all that calcium and vitamins in milk, milk would probably do more harm than good.

Since i was about 10yrs old, i've done my best to stick to a minimum of 1L a milk a day. <3 Milk. Cow, goat, soy. Whatever, milk is both delicious and goes great in coffee, making it the ultimate combo liquid.

err.. from what i understand.. milk is only present for infants (unable to chew) to have their daily nutrient needs in order to survive and develop.. however nutritious as it is.. in my point of view, milk's nutrients can be obtained from other foods although these cent be eaten directly by infants.. yeah.. milk is good for you.. but its like any other healthy food.. and in terms of the calcium for bones thingie.. remember milk is not the only food that provides those.. :w00t:

but then again.. its just my two cents

Hmm the pure belief in that milk makes you grow tall or will make you grow taller is quite the wrong style of thinking. Your growth is determined by genes, whether your father and your mother were tall/short/average etc. Milk will not make you grow to a point where it noticeable to say. Genes determine this.

Also, I have no idea whether this is correct or not. But there's this theory that you look at your fingernails and if there are white dots underneath your fingernails then you are lacking calcium, or milk. This could very well be just an urban myth to get you to drink your milk when you were young.

But in saying that, I believe that milk does have it's qualities and does help development of bones and growth etc.

Oh! Nearly forgot, yes I drink milk here and there. =]

I just drink milk every now and then when my parents buy it. I've heard goat milk is better than cow's - close to human breast milk - never tasted it though.

If I'm not mistaken there are certain vitamins or something similar that strengthen your bones, though you can get the same from cheese.


Of course, because cheese is a product of milk. I think Calcium is the one responsible in making your bones strong.


In this thread, I learned to not listen to your history teacher when it comes to milk.





Calcium, that was its name.. *palm_face on self*

Milk, good for yer bones and tasty ;D

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.


zomg..awesome theory, nd ya have my support(for whats its worth)
nd it makes sense

I <3 milk.

Drinking milk doesn't mean you won't get osteoperosis or something of the sort. Cause other stuff can give you calcium too, like... ... ... google it up.
