    perhaps, if one drank it with every meal and in between. in moderation, it’s not an issue. i’m not skinny, but it certainly isn’t from whole milk haha.
    FlaSwampRat and bzinger Thank this.

    you're lucky that you can STILL drink it

    i used to love putting ice cubes in mine, or make chocolate milk, or coffee milk. i used to like cereal and milk.

    but as some of us age, we can no longer tolerate it. can't recall when i had to give it up, but i'd be guessing when i was in my 50's.??
    FlaSwampRat and bzinger Thank this.

    I like chocolate milk and sometimes I usually go for strawberry flavored milk(typically 2% lowfat) but unfortunately I can’t drink too much due to lactose intolerance,which kinda blows!!
    Shame about Dean Foods,between them and Oberweis they have some of the best milk around.
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.

    Milk has been highly unprofitable for a while even with all the subsidies.

    Love 1%,Ohio Walmart's have the cheapest milk I've seen.

    96 cents for a half gallon,and 1.69 for a gallon,around where I live in Carolina,it goes for about 4.00.

    Whole milk is comes from the cow 97% fat FREE. Its full of good fat proteins that your body actually uses for burning energy. Reduced fat milk is basically cloudy water and offers little to no health advantage.

    My opinion, whole raw milk is the only way to go.

    Grew up on pasteurized skim, grandma used to buy 2%. After moving out i went to whole milk, then after milk hauling and seeing farmers drink their own cows milk.... i questioned it and made the switch about 4 years ago. Now my family only drinks raw. Tried pasturized a few times since and its a joke. Might as well drink almond milk.

    Whole raw goats milk is an even better option as lactose intolerant people can drink it regularly. On that statement, a few studies have found that lactose intolerance is because pasteurized milk loses most of what milk should be. And the human gut doesnt know how to process pasteurized milk.

    In many cases, lactose intolerant people could consume raw milk regularly because it has the proteins, bacteria etc that your gut actually needs to be healthy.

    Have to be careful drinking raw milk. It might have bacteria that makes you sick.

    the road less travelled
    Undulant Fever is caused by brucella abortus bacteria, which has been addressed first by pasteurization and vaccination for the disease in young heifers, called calfhood vaccination.

    If you have a good licensed supplier that does their job correctly, the risk is small.

    You have a better chance of getting listeria, salmonella, e coli from vegetables, fruit and meat than you do from drinking raw milk. We have outbreaks all year long all over the U.S. these are just the ones that made the cdc. I remember last year and the year before all the romaine lettuce being recalled because of bacteria issues.

    1993-2012 was the last reported cdc outbreak from raw milk.
    If i recall correctly the outbreak was part from a mass production raw milk farm supplier in California and they were hit with so many sanitary violations, not sure how they survived.

    I personally have never heard of a farmer getting sick from drinking their own cows milk. The old saying must be true, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. :)
