i love milk.it's healthy,and tasty~i don't know about being lactose intolerent.is that even possible..?milk doesn;t make people fart,at least not around me.if asians were lactose intolerent,we wouldn't be drinking milk and taking in diary products,would we?if you really are lactose intolerent,you wouldn't actually be eating cheese or anything else that is a diary product,right?you only mentioned that you were lactose intolerent to milk...strange.

anyways,did i say i love milk?

If the stereotype is true, it just goes on to show how book smart Asians are.
I mean, whoever thought of squeezing a cows udders, which look like multiple raindrop-shaped nipples on a ball sack, and then drinking the white liquid, (which looks like sperm in the unprocessed form...) has got to be the dumbest red-neck hillbilly ever.

Asians stayed away from drinking cow sperm and went on to stir-frying snakes and dogs. More protein in meat! We duns like to eat cum, thanks very much. Yeaahh baby!

Seems that it's normal for adults, moreso with specific ethnicities like Asians, Africans and Native Americans, to become lactose intolerate starting around their 20s.

From an article I read, the gene that produces lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose, normally "gets shut off" in adulthood as it was only needed as a child for breast feeding.

Ice cream, yogurt, cheese, and most of those things mentioned by posters in this thread that are mixed or processed have less lactose in them and are easier to digest for a lactose intolerant person. The amount of milk used for a bowl of cereal (1 or more cups) is exceeds the amount tolerable once the gene shuts down.

As part of a balanced diet, yes. Basically, it comes down to the nutrients in milk and how much of each you get everyday. Notably, it's rich in calcium which is needed to grow (and a decent amount of protein, but you can get protein from lots of stuff), but the OJ "plus calcium" you may find on grocery shelves can rival the content in milk. If you don't get sufficient calcium in your diet, you won't grow as optimally. Too much calcium doesn't hurt or help, the excess usually just passes right through the body. The other vitamins found in milk helps too, but normally you get more than you need from a balanced diet.

Not to scare you off, but there are studies that show there's a substance in cow's milk that increases the growth of the hormones that promote prostate and breast cancer. It's in debate, so nothing's proven. The milk industry has fought hard to defend itself against claims like this and it has a solid base, but the other sides' evidence isn't swept off the table. So, unless you have a better way to include calcium in your diet, you shouldn't avoid milk.

Pizza is the main thing I miss because of being lactose intolerant. Some people love it so much that they accept the smelly consequences. I also sort of miss cereal, but I sometimes still buy it - not as a breakfast food anymore, but a snack to eat dry.
