I'm trying to refine my diet and am considering eliminating milk.
I've always drank milk and never had any problems that were obviously attributed to milk consumption. I do get IBS, but my GP thinks it's stress related (my last bout was in spring 2011).
My current mindset is that it's produced for cows (calves), so should only be consumed by cows. As with all mammals that produce milk, it is "designed" for newborns to ensure they develop properly in the first months of their lives. After several months they are weened onto solid food.
What are your experiences of cutting out milk? Is there concrete evidence for or against the consumption of milk after infancy?
