Yes. I think it's weird and gross and I don't consume any milk.

I'm also lactose intolerant, and it concerns me that more people aren't educated about the dairy lobby and the many studies that have shown the negative effects of consuming cow's milk.

I lived in America's Dairy Land (aka Wisconsin) for 26 years before moving to Seattle, so it should be no surprise that the idea had never even occurred to me until someone said the same thing to me.

My response: "Huh."

It's a very good question, but you can have my cheese when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

There was nothing I loved more than the warm, fresh milk right after may grandparents melked the cows.

So long ago.
Never thought of it, really. Was just natural for me either, and no one ever asked. The cats didn't complain either.

I'm a big fan of cheese and ice cream, but not milk. The weird thing is, after not drinking any milk at all since I was a teen, the day before this thread started, I picked up a litre of chocolate milk on a whim, as I was walking through the dairy section of my grocery store. It's been good, but I can't see it becoming a regular thing.

I actually do like cheese but not cottage cheese or cream cheese - I could never stomach those but interestingly a hard cheese like a cheddar never bothered my stomach that much. I can't do yogurt or sour cream at all though.

Milk, for me, is one of those things that tastes great - until you think about what it actually is that you're drinking. The same goes for eggs. The idea of drinking human milk disgusts me just as much as the idea of drinking anything's milk, when I think about it

I drank a lot of milk growing up - always had a full glass with dinner, it's just what we did in my family. It was tasty.

Nowadays I very rarely drink plain milk. But I eat a lot of cereal with milk and drink a lot of lattes, although I tend to mix up my latte consumption with soy milk. I can't even stand the idea of soy milk on cereal, though. (Yes, I'm a very picky eater.)

If I ever became lactose intolerant, I would cry for months.

Haha!

You know people ask me this all the time - but believe me, if milk did to you what it does to lactose intolerant people you'd be sickened by the thought of it so I'm not sure you'd miss it that much. It really makes you develop a psychological barrier against it.

Mercifully I grew up with a Mom who was also lactose intolerant so that was very nice. I still remember sitting there in school as a little kid in tears because the teacher forced me to finish my milk because it was "good" for me.

Oh my god that's horrific I'm a big milk drinker, but I can completely understand how people feel like that about it. My best friend is lactose intolerant and finds it to be a real difficulty, other people just think she 'doesn't like it'

When I was 5 I probably did scream "I don't like it! It makes me sick!" which they of course took to mean that I was a picky eater.

I forgot about milk consumed with cereal! Although I use very, very little. Probably less than a half a cup. And I don't eat cereal daily, maybe a few times a week.

Oh, and yogurt. I loves me some yogurt.

No, because it's not true - orphaned mammals are sometimes adopted and nursed by lactating females of a different species.









It's less common in the wild, but not unheard of.

My school had a snack and school lunch program. My parents took me out of that and packed my own lunch. I remember there were 2 other kids in my class who did the same thing so I had company at lunch. I had a big crush on the boy so hey, worked out for me.

People who don't have issues with food/drink can't possibly empathize with those who do
