  • Yes, and are brainwashed into believing that it is in some way "Good" for us... Or provides us with calcium- when the FACT is that it takes more calcium than is available in the milk, to process the excess of protein in it. Oh, I could go on about FACTS related to cow milk, but no one would listen.
    Sadly, they watch commercials, and they buy what is said- but actually scientific research is for the crazies. *shakes head*

  • I'm not so sure of that as fact. I'm sure we are the only ones who do it all the time, but I don't think we are the only ones.

  • Once in a while you'll find an animal adopting a baby of another species but it's very rare and it doesn't continue in to adult hood. I don't know why anyone thinks it's a good idea to drink cow milk. It's meant to make a little baby cow grow rapidly in to a great big cow. Hands up if you want to grow in to a big fat cow.

  • Orphaned animals will drink from other animals. So not entirely true.
