What happens to your body when you drink milk every day?
These days, it's virtually impossible to know who or what to believe when it comes to healthy eating and staying fit. The tsunami of information with which we're deluged upon doing something as simple as googling "is [insert food/drink item here] good for you" means that, more often than not, it's almost easier to remain uninformed than risk trying to decipher the reasonable advice from the marketing propaganda.
The benefits of drinking milk have been extolled pretty much every day since grade school. Then, as we approached adulthood, the narrative changed, with suggestions that humans shouldn't imbibe dairy after a certain age due to its tendency to cause digestive issues, the dreaded weight gain, and much more. Likewise the variety of new-age milks on the market, from soy to almond, makes it difficult to decipher what's actually good for our bodies.
What does drinking plain-old cow's milk every day actually do to a woman's body? What are the real-life effects? What are the possible benefits and drawbacks? And should we be looking elsewhere for our sources of protein, calcium, and essential nutrients than the tall glass of the white stuff we've been conditioned to drink since we were in diapers? I asked a bunch of nutritional experts for their opinions on this hot-button topic, and the results may surprise you.
