Cow's Milk an Invader?

TryVeg offers up a short article on why humans shouldn’t drink cow’s milk. Check it out:
Our bodies treat cows' milk as an invader, and including milk and other dairy products in our diets is linked to many health problems.

Milk is touted for building strong bones, yet some research shows otherwise. Harvard School of Public Health's Nutrition chairman Walter Willet, M.D., M.P.H., Dr.P.H., writes: "Interestingly, many long-term studies have now examined milk consumption in relation to risk of fractures. With remarkable consistency, these studies do not show reduction in fractures with high dairy product consumption. The hype about milk is basically an effective marketing campaign by the American Dairy industry."

I totally agree!

Only humans continue to drink milk after being weaned. And only humans drink the milk of another species. You don't see other adult animals suckling on a cow's udders.

Once I stopped consuming dairy products, my constant sore throat disappeared, along with my ever present post-nasal drip. I had no idea that milk products were causing my congestion.
