    "Medical professionals do not recommend milk drinking by adults" comma, not period.

    "Medical professionals do not recommend milk drinking by adults" in many cases, BUT !!

    For a woman in her 80's, a broken hip is reportedly most often a death sentence. Women that age with a broken hip generally do not recover.

    And!!

    While our bones and teeth may be composed substantially of Calcium, the human body uses Calcium for more than only that.

    AND !!

    If the amount of Calcium and vitamin D is not fully present in the diet, the body will scavenge it from elsewhere, and that means bones, and bone loss.

    SO !!

    Post-menopausal women might do well to insure that their dietary intake includes sufficient Calcium and vitamin D * to minimize bone mass reduction related to late life profile.

    * The human body is reported to not efficiently metabolize Calcium without vitamin D, thought to be the reason the early humans that migrated North from the warmer, sunnier zones lost their melanin, so they could metabolize Calcium in sufficient amounts.

It is meant to make the calf grow tremendously in a short amount of time. Somehow I do not see that as being beneficial for humans, especially while facing an obesity epidemic.
    While I agree I would simply say this:

    cheese.

    Quality life is impossible without cheese.


    On a more serious note milk represents a low cost source of high quality protein so while it isn't essential to human adults it is a useful food.
