Fresh milk is perfectly healthy! I consumer milk on regular basis and I believe I'm ageing gracefully considering how young people think I am. it's overloading your digestive system with junk food that ages people. That's why most overweight/obese people look older than they are. To answer your question no, just my two cents 1f60a

Yea sometimes I mix it with my protein shake before bed if I can't make dinner. As for acne I can't tell for sure. I have heard some say too much of protein consumption( milk is basically protein other than the natural sugars)can induce acne in sensitive/oily skin. as for ageing I don't think you should worry. protein builds collagen in the body and collagen plumps up your skin making it look younger

I hate milk and never drink it...........and I am perfectly healthy and an avid runner........hasn't caused me any issues. I actually don't consume any dairy products other than yogurt and ice cream from time to time. I don't do milk, eggs, butter, etc. I had horrible cystic acne and eventually took Accutane. So I for one can tell you my acne had NOTHING to do with milk.

Fresh, pastured organic cows milk is good for you. Most milk in shops is very, very bad for you. So it's not easy to say is milk good or bad because it depends on where it comes from and how its been treated. Most milk you buy in shops is just bad for you. Almond milk, rice milk, goats milk, are usually fine but still takes some being careful.

A lot of the allergies that people have with milk is due to the processing and the added ingredients. I can tell you from my personal experience that most people who say that they have allergies to store bought milk/organic milk can try drinking boiled raw milk that comes from the organic dairy farms in rural areas.You will realize that you are not allergic or "lactose intolerant" to real milk at all.

this is an accurate point! Every time I take a trip down to my village the milk there's quite different even the smell and taste.. I believe the packaged milk has some not so good stuff added.. for sensitive people that's where the intolerance/allergy comes from.

yes Jano, there is a big difference in the milk bought from the stores than the real raw milk that comes from the farm. Its like buying packaged orange juice and making your own. Two totally different end results.

As far as looking old. Kenyans drink a lot of milk more than I have seen anywhere and they look very young well into their 40's like many east Asians. But this realization doesn't take into affect their mostly organic diets and very active lifestyles.

Isn't that the truth. Their "regular" runners are super high speed. Make you look like you're taking a nice relaxing walk when in fact you're huffing and puffing just to see their back end in the distance.

But the Ethiopians and Jamaicans trump them in speed.
Not in the marathons I run they don't!! Kenyans take it every time!! Speed running and distant running are completely different. In order to run the distance you need to be able to run for hours, which turns too your nutrition. Speed running is short and quick. Distance running takes training and LOADS of preparation. Takes more than milk to run like a Kenyan and besides, I hate milk so there ya have it :icon_cheers:

They the best at long distance running. But the Ethiopians and Jamaicans are the fastest in short distances. The Ethiopians will trail them until the end and then sprint past to the finish line - works every time. Unless the Kenyans sprint from the beginning and keep those Ethiopians way back in the distance because if the Ethiopians are anywhere close to a Kenyan they will win in the end.

Marathon runners can't sprint the entire thing they would never make it. But Kenyans is damn near a sprint. I've ran with many Kenyans, they travel the marathon circuit. Are paid to do so, ............and for good reason. What I would give to train with them........but if it requires milk, I'm OUT ;)

LoL Gymie it's not just milk it's practice and proper nutrition. Distances runners are some of the most well conditioned athletes in the world. They have the most endurance. You should come here some day.. ad take you to the north rift where most of these runners live and train. The weather is always conducive for the most part of the year.

That's true spoils1f44dthere's a big difference between store bought anything and home from the farm and eating organics foods makes you age gracefully.

From what I've gathered Gym is a marathon runner and is quite familiar with how well conditioned Kenyans and marathon runners in general are. She's not relating that with milk intake at all. Jano I think its more than just conditioning? It's genetics. There must be some genetic advantage to their muscle oxygen intake capacity leading to muscular efficiency more advanced than most? I don't know, just thinking.

I believe that too spoils. That's why they're different sports for different people. We don't see usain bolts winning those hundreds meters and scoring a touch down too. I bet with all that speed he wouldn't win a marathon.

Actually, I have looked into training camps in Kenya ;) Here are some interesting finds about why they are such great runners. http://www.npr.org/blogs/goatsandsoda/2014/11/04/361403249/what-makes-kenyas-marathon-runners-the-worlds-best Trust me, I have been running marathons for YEARS, travel all over to compete, and I am NOT the only one who always shakes their head when a Kenyan flies by. It happens in EVERY race I do. My belief is they train with their heart and soul. For us American's we train hard, but don't have it as difficult as the average Kenyan......meaning, we have all the bells and whistles to get us through. Example, when I run 15 plus miles, I carry a handheld water bottle, because hydrating helps in many ways......Kenyas don't have the luxuries to run with handheld water bottles, etc. Same with electrolytes, gels, etc we carry on us.....all these luxuries, us American's "depend" on, when we train hurts us in the end. However, I also don't compete for $$, I run for myself because it has just became a way of life for me. It's my exercise routine just like boxing was/is yours ;) its the sickness within us Jano that's the real truth of the matter :D
