Here's a kicker: milk isn't the only food that causes major digestive problems. Ever hear of fructose intolerance? It's relatively a new discovery and it's digestive problems when ingesting fruit-based sugars such as high fructrose corn syrup and yes some natural fruits that are high in fructose content. My daughter found out it was the source of her stomach problems and now on the low fructose diet she is fine. She went back to milk because at first doctors told her it was no doubt the milk but eliminating it just didn't solve her problems.

So picking on milk is irrelevant on that level since many people have many different food intolerances. My hubby can't digest tomato sauce well at all yet I'm just peachy with it.

I tend to listen to mainly exercise physiologists and sports nutritionists more instead of hype that possibly was created to sell more soy milk products?

One in particular one said in a news article that the attacks on milk are largely hype "Let's face it, dietary fat as the `bad guy' is old news, and every good story needs a bad guy," "Milk is the new bad guy of the day. After a while, it'll get back to beef, then maybe sugar. It's the cycle of 100-percentunfounded food bashing.

Here's some more info: Milk has alot of protein and that protein contains all eight essential amino acids, which means it's complete and can be readily used by your body for repair and growth. Milk actually includes two types of protein. Both are recognized as high-quality, muscle-building proteins; in fact, whey is currently the most common form of protein found in bodybuilding supplements.

A recent report published in the American Journal of Physiology that examined the body's anabolic response to whey, casein and amino-acid consumption, show whey to be a fast-acting protein absorbed quickly for use by muscles. Casein digests more slowly, providing your body with a steady stream of protein over time.

Milk has a lot more nutrients than just protein: vitamins D, A, [B.sub.2] and [B.sup.12], phosphorous, electrolytes and calcium all of which must be replenished if you're working your butt off in the gym.

Keep in mind that when you sweat you lose calcium as well as the electrolytes sodium and potassium.

I go to the gym for a reason, to get some lean muscle and if milk helps me, well, then I going with that. And so far so good folks I must admit.

Just more food for thought....
