That is an interesting question. The general conclusion of many is that milk is inappropriate. The catch is you require calcium and vitamin D to utilize the calcium. Milk products should be minimized for adults, according to many naturopathic physicians. On the other hand my little 102 year old al loves milk and I hate to deprive her. You have to avoid nightshaes at all costs. Nightshades include eggplants tomatoes and potatoes, but primarily the skins. Mother nature developed powerful natural insecticides to kill insiects that try to burrow into the night-shade family. These are all powerful inflammatory agents. That is why in many recipes the tomatoes are always skinned before making the sauce. Tomatos several centuries ago had higher quantities of these inflamatories than the modern tomato. They have been "bred out". Incidentally, potato skins cause birth defects. On a farm, if you feed livestock potato skins, particuliarly sheep, this can result in the deformity known as "sheeps eye".
If you need calcium, almonds are a great sourse, almond milk is good and almond cheese. My children DON'T get milk products, they like almond milk and it is a GREAT source for calcium and they also take a great organic vit.
