while excellence learns from failure."

There is always controversy following the topic of milk. I prefer no to drink any form of cows milk. However if it is your choice to do so, raw is a much better way to go.
Here is a great summary from an article Mike Adams, The Health Ranger shared with OCA recently. For the full article, please see link! My only addition is Seasame milk. Made just as simply as Almond milk...it has an amazing natural mineral content that truly nourishes strong bones and a healthy body. Enjoy! ~j
What's Best? Soy Milk, Cow's Milk, Raw Milk and Fermented Milk (Kefir)
Mike's Milk Matrix
Okay, here's the low down on milk products and milk alternatives as I see it:
Soy milk: Not recommended. Too many GMO soybeans, bad environmental impact and some possible undesirable estrogen effects. The isoflavones are good for preventing cancer, however.
Processed cow's milk: It's just gross. Homogenized, pasteurized, milked from unhealthy cows and containing alarmingly high levels of pus, this liquid is nothing less than frightening. Flee it.
Raw cow's milk (organic): This is an acceptable dairy beverage. If it's from healthy cows treated with kindness and good nutrition, this raw beverage is far better than processed cow's milk.
Raw goat's milk (organic): Even better than raw cow's milk, since the goat's milk is easier to digest and more compatible with human nutritional needs.
Fermented milk from cows or goats (organic Kefir): A great choice! It's alive, nutritious and great for digestive health. Make it yourself for best results. If you buy it, avoid the sugared-up kefir products in the store.
Raw almond milk: A top choice for vegans, one of my favorite beverages. Make it yourself with raw almonds, water a nut milk bag and a blender.
