I'm not a fan of most dairy and especially pasteurized milk. I have heard figures like 75% of people come to great auto-immune harm by drinking pasteurized milk, and it's not always so evident like with digestive problems of bodily inflammation, it can be subtle but deadly. Lots of people can't handle lactose or casein and there's some evidence to show that raw milk with the bacterial culture mitigates this kind of stuff, but why would you risk it? I think that anyone who wants to eat dairy of any kind should go get a real food sensitivity test from a competent naturopath and discover the truth. Auto-immune destruction of your GI tract ain't primal.
This was an interesting article. I don't know how much weight it carries but just going by our evolutionary axiom, I'd say that milk protein is bad news. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15578035
How about whey isolate at least. I know it's not dirt-cheap like pasteurized milk but there's a reason for pasteurized milk's dirt-cheapness.
