A high intake of milk might, however, have undesirable effects, because milk is the main dietary source of D-galactose. Experimental evidence in several animal species indicates that chronic exposure to D-galactose is deleterious to health and the addition of D-galactose by injections or in the diet is an established animal model of aging.[4-7] Even a low dose of D-galactose induces changes that resemble natural aging in animals, including shortened life span caused by oxidative stress damage, chronic inflammation, neurodegeneration, decreased immune response, and gene transcriptional changes.[5,7]A subcutaneous dose of 100 mg/kg D-galactose accelerates senescence in mice.[5] This is equivalent to 6-10 g in humans, corresponding to 1-2 glasses of milk. Based on a concentration of lactose in cow's milk of approximately 5%, one glass of milk comprises about 5 g of D-galactose. The increase of oxidative stress with aging and chronic low grade inflammation is not only a pathogenetic mechanism of cardiovascular disease and cancer in humans[8,9] but also a mechanism of age related bone loss and sarcopenia.[9,10] The high amount of lactose and therefore D-galactose in milk with theoretical influences on processes such as oxidative stress and inflammation makes the recommendations to increase milk intake for prevention of fractures a conceivable contradiction.

Ohhh the ignorance...If preventing a mother from nurturing her child and stealing milk from a baby isnt the epitome of cruelty, i dont know what is.

And we forget the suffering the cows endure because of us. Its plain disgusting. The whole diary industry. Its said that a glass of milk causes more suffering than a steak! Time to question our vegeta

I don't see any problem with milk it just needs to come from a good cared for cow.

Veer ji ,

we have different physiology than mice , but I would say yep Cow's milk as we consume it here in the West is very damaging to health, it is very acidic(forms acids) on digesting so the body leachs calcium from skeleton to buffer and rebalance ph levels of blood stream, if repeated then osteoporosis occurs , better off eating leafy greens, oranges, nuts and seeds for calcium and magnesium . Due to pasteurisation the protein become denatured and harder to digest/utilise as opposed to raw milk straight from cow . The heightened Ig1 hormone levels will also encourage development of insulin resistance and high blood sugars which wreck organs.
