That is a very ill informed post. Do you, or those close to you receive any remuneration from the dairy industry, by any chance?

Why would anyone 'like' to see people purchasing any particular product at the grocery store?

Perhaps you could write to these illustrious institutions and inform them of your intelligent discovery, that there is no such thing as lactose intolerance?

Lactose intolerance - MayoClinic.com
Lactose Intolerance Symptoms, Causes, Treatments, Tests
Lactose intolerance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lactose Intolerance - National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse

Why do you expose yourself by making such far fetched comments?

I live without any dairy and do just great. I live without any animal products and am perfectly healthy. I have Celiac and live without wheat, rye or barley and I am doing just fine, I eat no refined sugar either (just fruit).....yep, you can live quite nicely without eating every food under the sun. Eat what you want and what makes you feel good...your yearly physical results should help you and your doctor determine what, if anything, you need to eliminate or add to your diet.

My cats get excellent diets. Of course, cats that live outside have NO idea how to eat and survive (never mind we're on 55 acres) and insist in supplementing their diets with what they would eat if they were left to their own devices (mice, birds, rats, the occasional rabbit). And still they love milk! (Yes, I know all about the digestive thing and diarrhea and it appears to be the case for SOME cats, not ALL cats.) Just like bad reactions to dairy occur for SOME humans, not ALL humans.)

One wonders just what cats would do if we weren't around to control their diets and their lives. Would the species disappear entirely, or would they be healthier overall as a result?

Well, sure, that's what I said. Cats who live outdoors, cats on farms where they have to scavenge for food, will ingest whatever they can to survive, won't they? Just like the people in Russia during WWII eating shoe leather and wallpaper paste. Any port in a storm . . .

Cats and Milk: Lactose Intolerance and Other Dietary Concerns

. . . most veterinarians don't recommend it. Cats don’t need milk, and the potential problems outweigh the potential benefits.
This article says that most mammals, as they mature from childhood, decrease their ability to produce lactase.

I had had maybe seven or nine cats in my life and NONE would touch milk as adults. They were all fed the best food that I could buy and a variety of different foods, not just one brand. They also received vitamins.

So, it has been my experience that an adult cat with a well balanced diet do not want milk.

My farm cats were always happy and healthy and they always drank milk.

They really loved drinking milk.

I was so proud of them !

Sounds simple, right? Apparently not, as it's equally apparent that we've raised a culture of people who really really really care what other people are eating that they personally don't like or doesn't agree with them and that's just so wrong!

Best post yet !
