It's funny how here in America, milk is nature's perfect food, while people elsewhere seem to have a lot of trouble ingesting it. Maybe the death of a 5-month-old in England - due to cow's milk allergy, one of the commonest kid's allergies - can be written off as an isolated incident. But it's also odd that in Thailand this week, 50 students fell ill after drinking school milk. "We can't say what went wrong," an administrator said. "The milk was fresh. It's pasteurized, refrigerated all the time and was days away from the expiry date," he said. Well, yeah... but it's COW'S MILK! Could this be a clue that maybe Thai kids aren't built the same as cows? Oh, and the same might go for New Zealanders, where dairy products have been clearly linked to heart disease and diabetes. Yeesh, what are they putting in the stuff down there? Oh yeah, just the proteins that come with all cow's milk. Hmmmmmm.
