Milk and milk products have been the food staple of mankind since the beginning of recorded history. They are truly the one food source that has allowed us to become civilized and to develop societies as we know them today.
But now, milk has a bad name. Is it the milk itself or is it the way that it is being processed and delivered in this corporate farming world we now live in? Are the problems we see a result of pasteurizing and homogenizing, which are relatively new developments in the history of milk?
"Milk and milk products have been the food staple of mankind since the beginning of recorded history"
Well... Maybe since "recorded" history which is only a couple thousand years. Domestication of horned ruminant animals and the consumption of milk by the mankind is a relatively new thing in the total evolutionary timeline of the human species. We likely started out eating things like plants, grains, bugs and whatever meat we could catch and kill.
