Ice cream. I can't live without it. My daughter has a health food store, and sells vegan ice cream "alternatives". I've tried Rice Dream and Tofutti. No thanks. Ditto vegan cheese. That was absolutely gross (but she does sell a lot of it).

Sigh, I miss dairy. Who cares if we "need" to consume it; it's a feast for the senses. But, since I'm now allergic, I get by with substitutes. Most are absolutely vile, but I make my own soy cheese and yogurt, which are actually really good.

I can live without a lot of foods but enjoy a 1/2 klondike almost nightly .. I was raised on Isaly's klondikes but I'm not a kid anymore, an old one yes.

Soy has it's pitfalls believe me, messes up our thyroids so be aware of that one. I was so fatigued years ago when consuming soy crap is what I call it now. Read Soy Alert from Weston Price Foundation.

We are the only beings that drink cow's milk on and on after weaned from our mother's breasts. I use half and half for coffee or coconut milk.

Dairy causes a lot of mucus in our bodies.
Mucus is a carbohydrate. Anything that metabolizes to sugar, like potatoes or rice, helps create mucus. Whiskey is particularly good to cut the overproduction of mucus. Drambuie will loosen mucus in the lungs.

But I still LOVE milk. I drink about 2 glasses a day, and I love cheese and ice cream. I'm not sitting around thinking how good it is for my bones. I'm just thinking that it tastes good. I know I should drink more water but it just tastes so....blah.
Milk is subsidized because milk production is seasonal. If you leave it to the market, milk prices would fluctuate wildly throughout the year. Young mothers, who are the least able to afford expensive foods, would see $15/gallon milk prices in January. The government buys surplus milk in the spring and summer so there will be adequate production in the winter months.

Oh my dad ate loads of carbs and also drank loads of whiskey, so maybe whiskey saved him as he lived into his mid 90's...and never spared the booze or carbs.

Your link doesn't work....and again I gave you STUDIES that show milk and dairy doesn't "create mucous"

The dairy to mucous "link" is nothing but a myth perpetuated by the "alternative crowd" with no basis in fact...

If you bothered looking at any of the studies I listed one was a very elegant study where they gave participants milk and a non dairy drink with emulsifications to simulate the consistency of milk....

People who were predisposed to believing milk causes mucous production also believed the "milk like product" was creating mucous....it wasn't

As for your "friend"....who cares....

I drink cows milk every day.....I don't spit up mucous and phlegm daily....there I "disproved" your anecdote...

Can't speak for chimpanzees, though, as I've never had one of those....

I will say my dog LOVES yogurt, kefir, and cheese. And the cats will lick the butter if it's left open on the counter.
I give my cats a little spoonful of plain yogurt whenever I have some, which is about once a day. If I don't, they pester me until I do. I also give them a little bit of cream and cheese once in a while. Never had any "litter box problems" from that.
