Yes, I have also read that diabetes and eczema can be caused by too early/too much dairy.
I am a pretty "anti-dairy" person, but Ieven I wonder about these websites which seem to sensationalize the issue:http://www.notmilk.comhttp://www.milksucks.com
However, even if they have a rude in-your-face style some of the info is good in my opinion.
However even "legitimate" respectable authorities like Dr. Frank Oski, who was the head of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University,
say dairy causes a lot of people a lot of health problems (See his book DON'T DRINK YOUR MILK.)
And while I go back and forth over whether cow's milk is bad for EVERYBODY, and I imagine certain cultures/ethnic groups/families can tolerate it better and others worse,
I also agree with those authors who say the American dairy industry influences the governmental recommendations of calcium.....why is it that we Americans need SO much more calcium than other nations? The answer is money and political influence of the dairy industry in my opinion.
And the problems cause by replacing breast milk with cow's milk in small people is well documented.
I don't know much about the culture you are living in, whether breastfeeding is still the norm or is being influenced by people wanting to imitate Western trends and drink more dairy or formula (and if not imitating Western trends, then influenced by aggressive formula marketing?)
Is it true that even when Muslim women cover up in the Middle East, they don't care if their lactating breasts are covered? I have read that in more than one Western (British and American) breastfeeding book.
