HEALTH BENEFITS OF MILK SUBSTITUTES
These days, people aren’t limited to drinking just cow’s milk. There are many reasons for moving away from traditional dairy. People who follow a Primal or Paleo lifestyle, vegans and some vegetarians, and Lactose intolerant folks typically avoid dairy, and especially milk. Even people without dietary restrictions are moving towards using milk substitutes, especially as more and more studies are suggesting that perhaps cow’s milk isn’t the healthiest option. Some are concerned about America’s industrial production of dairy, including pasteurization, others are worried about added hormones and the ethical treatment of dairy cows. Still others believe that cow’s milk, no matter how ethically produced, has adverse health effects on children and adults.
