Of course not: Please forgive my frankness. You're an adult and you need to stop believing everything you read on the internet. Everything can be shown to "cause cancer" in a badly-designed study, and one of the animal-rights groups has targeted milk especially hard because of a political dispute going back to the "cow parade" business.

Milk: Nope. Of course not. If your hair was falling out that was because you were not eating enough protein. Remember protein should be the major part of your calories and hair is protein. A diet low in protein is not a healthy lifestyle. You can still be a vegan and eat good protein sources. Milk is a high sugar food. There is growing evidence that many of us grow intolerant of it and should avoid it
