Recently, I have read in an article that consuming milk and milk products may cause cancer due the use of artificial cattle feeding. Is that true? Is it possible to avoid milk products completely? Please provide your valuable suggestions!

The volume of milk needed would be excessive. Most cancers defined today if not genetically induced (5%) are viral or carcinogen induced. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Thank you. I was dianosed with casein intolerance. I've been avoiding cow dairy. How do I know if I'm supposed to avoid goat's milk/cheese too?

Move on to something else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In evoporated milk which brand is good for a 14 month old baby.....And can he have whole cow milk ?
Old standby: 40-50 years ago many moms made up their own formula by adding water to evaporated milk (lasted longer on the shelf) , boiling it so it could be digested ( cow milk is for cows) & tossing in some karo syrup & vitamins. If you're in a place where fresh milk is difficult to find, any product should be similar & should be diluted 1/2 & 1.2 with water. Regular milk is preferred for convenience. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
