Does the fact that ONLY the human adult drinks baby milk (and another species) explain why people's thinking is so poor and childlike?

Simon: it is "consumption", or, rather, "over-consumption" itself that is at the heart of our problems.

Gordon: What has cows milk (Full fat, semi-skimmed or skimmed) got to do with my comment about individual and societal "over-consumption" being the cause of our economic, political and social problems?

Pi**ocks. Because we are talking about consumption of cows milk.

Spin says:
Gordon: Ok. Go ahead and talk of the consumption of milk as a benefit or detriment to the individual and society. Leave the serious issues, such as the reason for the consumption of milk, to us.

You're blathering rubbish again.

I have no opinion on the subject of this thread. I am in no position to comment. I know nothing. I have no idea why the Funty posted it.

Okay...let's begin...

In order for humanity to change...to evolve consciously...we MUST improve our thinking...better thinking = better world...the fact that some humans drink milk is clearly illogical, foolish and daft...so if we begin to challenge our dumbo thoughts....?.... a better world may emerge.

Simon: Science does not know why humans became milk drinkers. The ability to farm animals contributed, obviously, but even today, some folk are Lactose intolerant. And a calf will not suckle a human. It is, as I point out, our desire for consumption; we eat eggs, the source of life itself, as other creatures do. Milk is simply a resource'. But why someone, obviously an adult, decided to drink what came out of a cows or goats udder baffles me. Without processing cow and goats milk has a disgusting taste.

Dear Beloved...as you know the fount is like a finger pointing to the moon..however please do not concentrate on the finger...milk is a food made for the very young of mammals...it contains a mix of hormones NOT designed for children or adults...Insulin Like Growth Factor...IGF...surely it is not difficult to see drinking milk is an absurdity...a relic..?

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Apr 2013 21:08:50 BDT
Go on I'm listening...not questioning any of this. Tell me more...butter me...why is the hormones no good for grown ups. What's this <<Insulin like growth Factor...IGF>>stuff? What does it do to a grown up?

This got me worried actually as I must consume vast amounts of milk in my all-day cups of hot water and milk (tea or coffee, there's not much difference the way I drink them). We nag at my son for taking a pint glass of cold milk and leaving none for anyone else that day, but he's quite right in saying we probably have more than he does.

The Alpro website is very fair in that it says:
Lactose intolerance mainly affects adults and prevalence varies widely across the world - around 5% of UK adults are estimated to be affected, and it's usually inherited. In the rest of Europe the figure is around 5-10%.

Some races, particularly those whose diet has been traditionally non-dairy based, are more susceptible e.g. in South-East Asia and parts of Africa. It is particularly high in people of Chinese and Japanese descent, with 90% thought to suffer some degree of lactose intolerance.

Lactose intolerance in children is very rare and usually short-lived, lasting for up to 6 weeks following an infection, or as a side effect of another underlying disorder.

Children with lactose intolerance need specialist advice and supervision from a doctor or dietitian to ensure they continue to get the essential nutrients they need for growth

There's also dairy allergy, and (in my case probably) drinking too much milk.

I'm not sold on it being bad for us. The human race does all sorts of things other animals don't do, like putting goods or a saddle onto another species and making it carry for us, let alone taking its milk and drinking it as adults. However I think I'll cut down on milk for a few days as I like soya milk and Alpro desserts.

Mixing politics with religion, the Koran talks about the wicked as receiving nothing but 'a hot, murky liquid' to drink! Of course, when you live in the desert the ideal would have to be cold, clear water, but I'm also wondering if hot water and gunge are as bad an idea as the milk. Maybe that's the tannin.
