here's a quote from veg source--the above listed link. As I was reading it (by the way thank you for the link) I came across this quote which really rubbed me funny. I don't necessarily think the dairy is REALLY good for you, but this is how they described milk.
Milk is an excellent source of growth hormones, fat, cholesterol, allergenic proteins, blood, pus, antibiotics, bacteria, and viruses, and what the dairy industry touts as "the perfect food."
OK...I understand that this is a vegan site, but this would lead me to believe that all of these "bacteria, pus, blood etc" is also in breastmilk, since it is essentially the same thing with a different nutrient make-up for a different species. So, either the "yucky" is ok if it is in breastmilk, or the quote is just another play on words by vegans to show how bad milk is for you.
ps...i just found this interesting and would like to hear what others have to say. I was vegan for about a year and have recently started eating dairy again.
