RAW cow milk and human consumption
I listened to the interview with Mark McAfee today on Real Food Summit about the benefits of raw cow milk and the problems with CAFO milk. It all sounds great, and raw is definitely the best option between the two nutritionally speaking. But I can't help but wonder if it is a two-option fallacy. Humans produce milk for their babies, and after the first two or three years, those babies get their nutrition from other whole foods like meats, veggies, and fruits. Cows produce milk for their babies. And each type of milk is specially made for the type and size digestive system it feeds. Human milk is completely compatable for humans and cows for cows. So why are humans the only ones who want to keep drinking milk after they wean? Whey and casein allergies aside, and lactose intolerance aside (which is less with raw), can we not skip the milk all together and get our nutrition and good bacteria from the soil and other whole food sources?
