Milk. White Poison or Healthy Drink?

Over the last decade milk has become a bit controversial. Some people say it’s a necessary and nutritious food, vital for healthy bones, but others say it can cause cancer and lead to an early death.
So who is right? And why are we drinking it anyway?

    People are worried about milk causing acne. At the same time animals are living a life of being artificially impregnated, separated from their children few days after birth, and exploited for milk - something I wouldn't wish my greatest female enemy.

    I wonder when people will realize all these claims are ideological in nature. Not scientific. So they manipulate and cherry pick science to support their vegan narrative. It's quite common with ideologically possessed virtue signaling civil rights movements.

    Dairies like to make money. Happy cows produce more milk. The dairy treats cows well because it makes more money. You always have a risk of cruelty by employees, but the owner will fire them instantly if discovered. Lots of farmers really care about their cows too.

    The ethics alone is enough for me to never ever have it. Also milk is inflammatory and osteoporosis has skyrocketed in china after they started to consume western ammounts of milk. (Because the acidic effects of it has to be neutralised, forcing the body to take calcium from it's own bones). Also no adult should suck on the tits of pregnant mothers, and there is on average a drop of pus (yes, pus like that in pimples) in every glass of milk from sores in the nipples of the exhausted cows.

    The video was informative right up until you started to inject your politics. When you say cows make more carbon then all airplanes that’s a hard one to believe. And if it’s true airplanes don’t make that much carbon. And I’m not convinced carbon is bad for the world since plants eat the carbon dioxide. Since it is also been shown the more carbon dioxide there is the less water plants need
