Why Milk is Bad for Us and Bad for Cows

There is a lot of controversy about milk nowadays. While some doctors promote milk as a nutritious drink, other nutritionists have linked excess milk consumption to several diseases including cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Milk has lots of calories which contribute to the obesity problem in the United States.
