General Consensus Poll: Drinking Milk
I've been through 100's of pages of threads, and it's somewhat hard to get a general consensus on the question I'm trying to answer.
So here's the facts:
[LIST][*]I cannot source raw, organic milk in Ohio without cowsharing.[*]We have a local organic dairy that uses low heat pastuerization, grass-fed cows, and is fully organic (Hartzler Dairy in Ohio...the only one I know of in the state)[*]The milk is not homogenized...it even has the cream plug on top when you open it, and must be shaken.[*]It's whole milk.[*]It comes in glass bottles, so no BPA concerns (you have to pay a deposit on them, otherwise, it's $3.50/ half gallon)[*]I am addicted to milk. I grew up having it almost every day.[*]I'm lifting heavy things 3x/ week, walking every day at lunch, and sprinting once in a while.[*]I am otherwise eating primally, save for CAFO supermarket beef once in awhile when my grass fed runs out. No sugars, grains, legumes, etc.[/LIST]
So, the question is, given that the type of milk I am drinking is probably as close to raw milk as I can legally get in Ohio without owning a cow, [U]is drinking a quart of this milk per day too much?[/U]
