Thanks for sharing. I will think about this more. Before I had ibs I didn't have a lactose intolerance,that I know of anyway. What kind of milk should humans consume then? rice or almond? I don't like the fact that there is no usda organic rice or almond milk,well in this town anyway..I can't handle soy..and I;m one of the people that believe its unhealthy its a genetically modified food thats not meant to be eaten.
Honestly, you really don't need milk. If you can't handle soy, and a lot of people can't, then either rice or almond (although if you go with almond, keep it to no more than once a week, because nuts can be allergenic, and people with allergies tend to develop more as they get older to the foods they eat the most) Also, I eat an "ice cream" made from coconut milk (it's not a nut, it's a seed) and it's wonderful stuff. The "cheese" I eat is soy, but they make some nice rice based cheeses, too. Also, there is one brand of almond based "cheese" but again, you don't want to eat it daily.
You don't need to drink milk, you aren't an infant or a toddler. My kids haven't had milk since they were toddlers, and that was only human milk. (although my youngest one does drink organic soy milk from time to time, but not every day) They nursed until they weaned themselves, then water became their main beverage, as is mine. (although I wasn't nursed for but a few weeks. My mom wasn't given the right information from "the doctors" and even though my dad's mom and grandmother and aunts knew EVERYTHING about breastfeeding, she didn't listen to them. It's water (or milk) under the bridge, so there's nothing anybody can do about it now.)
The soy stuff I eat is only organic and not genetically messed with. But, some people's systems can't handle soy, so if you can't stay away from it.
