Soy milk is so much better than milk!
97% of all Soy grown in USA is Genetically Modified Organism. GMO's cause organ failure in lab rats, specifically digestive organs.

Soy also mimics estrogen and can cause cancer.

I love it, probably drink at least a pint every day and always full fat. Ever heard of the GOMAD (weight gain) diet? If you like milk, google it. It's madness! I know milk can be a bit funny for some of us so i'm def NOT recommending it

This is one of those interesting threads/discussions one can have... From 1~15ish years old growing up we drove a mile down the road (lived far out in rual country area) to neighbors dairy and got raw unprocessed milk from the holding tank befor the milk truck would come and take it away. We did this right up tell the state decided raw milk could not be sold.

This then set up a still ragging long long battle between my parents as to which brand milk tastes like actual milk.

I just recently tried tasty milk again and I defiantly can have it again which is important cause cause peanutbutter or cookies and cream milkshakes have returned, yay!! (drink a lot of milk)

It is not for those with thyroid issues.
It can interfere with thyroid medication.
At one time I did like it but then discontinued it because of Hashimotos treated with synthroid.

I love milk...but milk does not love me. Growing up I drank whole milk with dinner. By the time I was out of high school it would give me excruciating cramps, terrible gas and diarrhea. Now I never drink it or have ice cream. Last time I had ice cream I was in pain for hours. I have almond milk instead.
Currently on: Colazal, Prilosec, multi-vitamin, probiotics, total EFA's, glucosamine.

Previous meds: Sulfasalazine, Asacol, Rowasa, Pentasa, Entocort.

My son is allergic to cows milk, I have rarely eaten anything with a milk product in it in the last 4 years. I developed Crohn's during that time (during my second pregnancy).

I have thought about re-entering cow's milk yogurt into my diet, but am not really sure how without contaminating my house with cow's milk ::

I was told by a nutritionist that whole milk introduces less lactose in it than 2% or skim, since the fat helps the human body digest the milk in a more efficient way. I have found that skim milk aggravates my IBD, but whole milk does not. So, if you are feeling adventurous, give whole milk a try!

My son does eat some dairy products, but never liked or drank cow's milk. He prefers almond milk.

I drank it all the time as a kid and now all of the sudden I'm having crohns like symptoms. I read earlier today that MAP infection can be transferred to humans through cows milk. Seems like an interesting coincidence.

I love milk. All through chilhood I had two or three cups a day. Dairy has never been an issue for me. Recently when in hospital I had a sudden drop in blood sugar which caused an insane thirst for milk. I drank about four cups over the space of an hour, along with all the Lucozade the nurses were making me drink. I don't know why the blood sugar drop caused that particular craving, but few things feel as satisfying as drinking that milk did.

I drink at least 600ML of milk per day.

In Australia, there is a special type of cows milk called Complete Dairy High Protein Milk.

It goes through cold filtration which increases the amount of protein and decreases other things like lactose.
