I like mine with plenty of vitamin K.

No, this is malk.

I stay on the safe side and don't drink any milk.
 
2014-03-12 02:46:58 PM
Water is the wrong kind of milk? I guess I can accept that.
 
2014-03-12 02:50:13 PM
Our milk is fine. You just need to dilute it with ice, then sterilize it with vodak and Kahlua.

Thank God I no longer eat apples incorrectly.

Thank goodness for this.  I lay awake all night last night wondering, "have I been drinking the wrong kind of milk?"  Now I know.

I love milk but it makes me fart a lot

Don't tell me what to drink, you damn hippies. Like you should talk after that raw milk debacle.

Beru Lars approves.

Just keep it away from my moo cow fark milk.

I only drink organic milk lovingly collected from nursing free range prairie dogs.  you've never heard of it.

Holly: We're a bit short on a few supplies.
Lister: Like what?
Holly: Cow's milk. Ran out of that yonks ago. Fresh and dehydrated.
Lister: What kind of milk are we using now?
Holly: Emergency back-up supply. We're on the dog's milk.
Lister: Dog's milk?!
Holly: Nothing wrong with dog's milk. Full of goodness, full of vitamins, full of marrowbone jelly. Lasts longer than any other type of milk, dog's milk.
Lister: Why?
Holly: No bugger'll drink it. Plus, of course, the advantage of dog's milk is that when it goes off, it tastes exactly the same as when it's fresh.
Lister: Why didn't you tell me, Holly?
Holly: What, and spoil your tea?

I'm not drinking man milk no matter how you frame it.
 
2014-03-12 03:28:57 PM
More for me.

I am a super mutant!  All milk must bow before my digestive processes!

I have never had any problem with milk (except that I don't like it).

Mind you, I have Danish ancestors, and the Holstein cattle come from Schleswig-Holstein, the last remaining bit of the Danish Empire*, which was annexed by Germany in 1864. I am problem able to deal with both A1 and A2 proteins, whatever they are.

I do like Danish Blue cheese. But I have given up pining for the Norwegian Blue parrots and the fiords of Norway. We're never going to get them back, are we?

Bet you never knew that Denmark was an Imperial Power once. Also that it had a colony in the Caribbean and others as far away as India.

But if you have really good eye-sight, you can see the Danish Empire on this map:

See the little green dots? That's the Danish Empire.

They still have Norway and a border dispute over Hans Island, between Canada and Greenland. The Canadians keep burying bottles of Canadian rye and the Danes keep burying bottles of aquavit on the island and sometimes they find the other country's cache and drink it.

It's the most pleasant ongoing war in history.

Am I not a treasure hoard of weird, wild and wonderful information?

Since it's Mother Jones, is the right kind of milk 'artisinal free trade cruelty free sustainable vegan organic goat's milk'?

And here we go.

Oh look, in that very article, after the first paragraph of scare-mongering:

"The company that sells it has the patent on the only test that can tell the difference, and a study found no relationship".

I only drink Tuscan Whole Milk...

Oh look Mother Jones, the Daily Mail of health.
 
2014-03-12 05:37:01 PM
Well, that was a big, steaming pile of nonsense.  For those who didn't rtfa:

Cows apparent make milk with two different types of proteins, A1 and A2 (or a mix of both)
The HYPOTHESIS is that drinking the milk with the wrong protein (A1) can be harmful for humans (causing diabetes and other terrible things), and many can't digest it...except that all of the 'evidence' of this falls completely apart with larger sample sizes

Scaremongering...I hate it.

Indeed, a 2009 review by the European Food Safety Authority found no link between the consumption of A1 milk and health and digestive problems. So far, much of the research on the matter is funded by A2 Corp.

I only stuck around until "autism" before I closed the tab.

The study, underwritten in part by A2 Corp., is now undergoing peer review in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.

The point of peer review is that you only pay attention to the studies that pass it.

I'm sure the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry will be pleased as punch that these folks are trying to use them as a credibility boost. Maybe I should submit a paper claiming that A2's milk contains dozens of the same "toxic chemicals" present in childhood vaccines, and then get Mother Jones to report that that paper's "undergoing peer review".
