The Facts on Milk

Los Angeles Times

If you've ever had a question about milk—cow's milk, goat's milk, almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, or hemp milk—we've got an article to share with you ...

Milk (usually cow's milk) is kind of a controversial beverage. Talk to some people and they'll tell you that it's unhealthy and, in general, bad for the environment. Talk to other people and they'll tell you that it's an essential part of a healthy diet. Then there are the allergies and the growth hormones. Organic vs. raw vs. regular.

It's confusing.

Luckily, we just found a pretty informative article at the LA Times, "Poring over the facts about milk." If you've ever wanted more information on your milk of choice, this is the article to read. A few topics are glossed over. We would've liked to see a bit more discussion of growth hormones and organics, but all in all, we feel much more knowledgeable on the subject after reading the article.

Read the whole thing here and let us know what you think.
