The milk from cows' mammary glands has long been associated with good health, making it one of the most consumed beverages throughout the US and Europe.
The majority of people worldwide are not able to digest lactose, the sugar in milk, beyond infancy (i.e. when they stop breastfeeding). The ability of a small number of humans to digest lactose beyond infancy is first thought to have evolved in dairy farming communities in central Europe around 7500 years ago.
An estimated 15% of people of northern European descent, 80% of blacks and Hispanics, and more than 90% of Asians and First Nations people do not produce lactase, the enzyme needed to digest lactose. The resulting symptoms of lactose intolerance can include abdominal pain, bloating, gas and flatulence and watery stool.7
Advertising from the dairy industry has brought certain phrases into popular use, such as "Milk: it does a body good" and "Got Milk?" The presence of these slogans in mainstream media has further propelled the notion of milk being a healthful choice.
Milk is a white liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals. All mammals, including humans, will normally produce milk to feed their offspring, weaning those offspring onto solid food as they get older. Some humans choose to consume milk intended for baby cows, sheep and goats, as well as other animals, often continuing this practice into adulthood. Many more people now choose instead to consume one or more of the numerous "milk alternatives" available, such as soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk and others.
In an attempt to maintain the popularity of cow's milk, manufacturers have created many new products including flavored varieties like strawberry or chocolate, lactose-free milks, milk with added omega-3s, hormone free or organic milks and reduced fat milk.

Cow's milk is also often fortified with vitamin D, which is also beneficial for bone health. However, other nutrients are also necessary for bone health, such as vitamin K, strontium, magnesium and vitamin C.
