I love milk. I know it's not really good for me, even tho I drink skim or no-fat. I can drink a gallon in one day, if I allow myself.

Think about it. We drink something that comes from animals that's intended for their young. And not all mammal milk. We drink milk from cows, from goats and sometimes from sheep or water buffalo. But we don't drink milk from dogs, horses, or cats. Why?
