(Some Guy)   Milk marketers try to fool kids into drinking milk by loading it with so much sugar and fake flavor that it tastes nothing like milk.   ( divider line

And defeats the whole purpose of drinking milk.

But it's rich in calcium!

Oh, wait, so is my multivitamin.

Havent they done this for years with Choclate milk.

plain milk sucks. I've always hated it.
Now, Hershey's Vanilla Milk Shakes, on the other hand, rock!

Buncha babies!

Don't be so strict about what you eat/drink.

i'd rather drink puddle water than any kind of milk.

and it's really not that good for you.

Milk. Fark that. I don't drink anything that comes out of a cow's ass.

I recently bought milk just to make white russians. I usually don't drink the stuff and sure enough... the drinks were tasty at first but leave this gross filmy aftertaste.

I think I should stick to tea and weed. Much nicer all around.
2004-12-27 04:33:26 PM  
Eric...Half and Half is much better for a white russian.

This is why I never drank chocolate milk as a kid, if I wanted to drink something like that, I'd go put some Nestle Quick or Hershey's Syrup into my milk. Even then, chocolate milk always left me thirsty for some reason.
2004-12-27 07:00:35 PM  
Milk manufacturers make massive mistake.
2004-12-27 07:12:00 PM

Your understanding of mammalian anatomy is astounding.
Not to mention, ALL mammals produce milk.
2004-12-27 07:13:13 PM  
Drinking some animals milk is disgusting and senseless.
2004-12-27 07:14:34 PM  
Didn't they do this already? I remember back in the fourth grade when we had "Smilk", a dangerous combination of strawberry grapes and lactose.
2004-12-27 07:14:52 PM  
Milk by it's self is no good. Though I often drink it with certain meals. Milk is really good for cleansing the pallete, and often goes great with dinner type meals.
2004-12-27 07:15:57 PM  
mmmmmm, root beer flavored milk....

ok, that sounds disgusting
2004-12-27 07:15:59 PM  
Mmm... horchata.... And chai latte....

I get sick if I drink regular milk by itself.
2004-12-27 07:16:00 PM  
wtf! kids today *don't* like the taste of milk? wtf!

They're a heart attack in a bottle, but I have to agree.

Bovine milk is for baby cows.

Too much calcium contributes to osteoporosis (sp?).

It is also chock full of blood and puss cells.

Stop drinking it.

Check out the science and spread the word:

I love milk, but due to perpetual allergy/sinus problems and the occassional cold, I can rarely drink it.

2004-12-27 07:17:57 PM  

Cow milk is for pussies!
2004-12-27 07:19:03 PM  
office_despot: Not to mention, ALL mammals produce milk.

I don't produce milk.
2004-12-27 07:19:16 PM  

Trolling notwithstanding, that website is complete and utter crap. There isn't a single bit of "science" there.
2004-12-27 07:19:27 PM  
Late last year, Coca Cola, for example, introduced Swerve, which has just enough milk 51 percent to be labeled with the "Real' dairy seal.

Proofreading is your friend.
2004-12-27 07:19:55 PM  

I knew I could count on someone for the MALK reference.

2004-12-27 07:20:13 PM  
Nein, p0lp0t, it says too much protein contributes, not calcium.
2004-12-27 07:21:26 PM  
What's wrong with milk? I've been drinking it my whole life, still do, although I only drink skimmed milk.

Did you know that chocolate milk is made of expired or almost expired dairy products? To over up the weird taste and smell, they put in a load to chocolate flavour.
2004-12-27 07:21:36 PM  
WTF is wrong with milk? I probably drink 6L of milk a week. Im totaly healthy.

A new study published in the February, 2003 issue of Annals
of Rheumatic Diseases confirms that those people eating a
diet high in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and certain oils
also known as the "Mediterranean diet" helps ease symptoms
in people with rheumatoid arthritis.

This study was performed on non-vegetarians living in
Sweden. The authors obtained dramatic results by placing 26
subjects on a dairy-free diet for three months, while 25
people continued to eat a typical Swedish smorgasbord of
meat and dairy products. According to Dr. Lars Skoldstam:

"The current results suggest that patients with rheumatoid
arthritis can obtain better physical function and increase
their vitality from eating a Mediterranean diet for three

The results of this current study come as no surprise.

In 1985, the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
(volume 78) reported the case of an eight-year-old girl with
severe rheumatoid arthritis:

"...juvenile rheumatoid arthritis was a milk allergy. After
avoiding dairy products, all pain was gone in three weeks."

In 1991, the British journal Lancet (Volume 338) published
the results of a study in which the subjects ate a
vegetarian diet:

"Controlled trial of fasting and a one-year vegetarian diet
eased symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis."

The British Journal of Rheumatology (36;1, 1997) reported:

"...43 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, those assigned to
a vegan diet...had improvement in rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful condition, and it is
tragic that many physicians let their patients know that
there is no cure. Ignorance is the most horrible of
diseases, and keeps arthritis sufferers from the simple
relief of their pain: a NotMilk diet.

I live on milk, the crap is just too tasty to give up...or to load up with sugar.

I'm a powerlifter, and even I don't like sugar-filled drinks.

Well then, eddyatwork you are either a reptile or male.
2004-12-27 07:22:59 PM  
Skim Also for me, unless its chocolate milk.. then its heavy cream or whipping cream. :)

I thought Milhouse only drank soy malk. (The regular kind could kill him.)
2004-12-27 07:23:54 PM  
I have nipples, office_despot, could you milk me?

/can't wait for the sequel, though I hate barbara streisand
2004-12-27 07:24:39 PM  
Horchata is fabulous, but it doesn't have milk or any other dairy products in it.
2004-12-27 07:24:46 PM  
Funny how many people will freak out at the idea of drinking human milk, but think nothing of drinking the milk of other animals.

And the Submitter got away with the ending punctuation.
2004-12-27 07:25:26 PM  
yeah, so I mixed up the calcium and animal protein association with osteporosis. good catch...
2004-12-27 07:25:54 PM  
I love milk. I don't care if it has blood and pus (this is the correct spelling) in it, pus was in the old smallpox vaccine, and its jus white blood cells, cellular debris and some other crap. I WILL NEVER STOP DRINKING IT!
2004-12-27 07:28:04 PM  
Milk just seems like something that would be bad for you to me, I can't really back that up with anything, but it is secreted by cows to feed baby cows, not humans. That being said, I still like it, and drink it when my sinuses permit me.
2004-12-27 07:28:31 PM  
I love my liquids to be chock full of BGH, among many other homrone additives.

I don't drink soda ethier, just rainwater and grain alcohol.

2004-12-27 07:29:57 PM  
This just in:

Cow milk isn't all that good for you.
2004-12-27 07:31:06 PM  
Milk's good for you, and damn tasty. I have blood in my meat (far more than in gallons of milk) and I don't care. I do, however, buy milk from happy, grass fed cows.
