Actually 5FingazofDeath hit on what I was alluding to directly.
Also, thanks for the article, Rock Mechanic.

I am lactose intolerant so I be biased. Milk is baby food - good for baby calves - not what we were meant to consume daily IMO.
Here is an interesting Guardian Newspaper Article that discusses the pro's and cons (I know I am supposed to summarise any article - they point out that there are many pros and cons...). one point they do make is that in the US women consume more milk than any other country but have the highest rates of osteoparosis (sp?)
In the West we have higher rates of breast cancer that has been attributed to or consumption of dairy produce.
You cannot equate correlation with causation.
You have to measure how much rest and exercise the US women get to accurately see how the milk intake is affecting them. If you are a person and drink milk, work out, lift weights, then your bones will be MUCH stronger than a person who CHOOSES to live a sedentary lifestyle wasting away.
And not like America is slim-ville either....
And now I read the article and it comes to my point exactly...kinda. Not a bad article I think, takes the time to revie wboth sides of the issue. I'll still drink milk and not think about it, everything in moderation.
Similarly, researchers at Penn State University concluded that bone density is affected by how much exercise girls get in their teen years, when up to half of their skeletal mass is developed. The girls who took part in this research had wildly different calcium intakes, but it had no lasting effect on their bone health. "We [had] hypothesised that increased calcium intake would result in better adolescent bone gain," said one researcher. "Needless to say, we were surprised to find our hypothesis refuted."
No good conclusion......I won't change anything.Surfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! https://www.facebook.com/Bullshido

I would think the change in digestive enzymes would be due to the fact that by that age milk plays less of a role in your diet.
I cant site where I read it, but as mentioned before milk is only "made for" babies. Human or animal. To drink the milk of another animal is unnatural. Especially if you are an adult.
The only time an animal has milk is when its young. Then they move on to "real food". So I think the change of body effects the diet. Not the change in diet effects the body.

natural doesn't mean good. Else you shouldn't even eat domesticated grains.
