Just as all animals are not alike, so the milk from cows, goats, pigs and humans is not alike. Cow’s milk is designed to quickly create a huge, big-boned adult animal in only two years. So if you are fat and if you drink cow’s milk and eat cheese and ice cream made from cow’s milk, do not expect to lose weight!
