Well I have been drinking milk since an infant. I NEVER suffered a bone fracture even after some nasty falls and other injuries. A gunshot wound did remove part of a lower back rib as part of on exit wound. That surely can not be blamed on drinking milk. Also, drinking unpastuerized is very dangerous in case you do not know that. And of course a very many people can not tolerate milk as adults. But I can and do. In fact a glass of milk for me is an instant shot of strength and vitality when I need one.
   In conclusion: If you are a person who lacks the necessary enzyme [ lactase ] as an adult milk is not good for you. If on the other hand you have no problem digesting milk it is VERY good for you in my opinion. And NEVER drink unpasturized milk.   ...Oscar

I recommend 400 mg of calcium lactate for males, and 700 mg of calcium lactate for females.  Of course, you will have to experiment with dosage levels to see what works best for you.

There is a wealth of information concerning raw milk on Weston Price's website.  You have the 'milk lovers', and the 'milk haters' that bear down on if milk should be consumed by humans at all.  Some say we are the only species on the planet that consume milk as adults and should not, then like the Weston Price Foundation they show empirical evidence that cultures that consume raw milk are in extreme good health.  Lately, the experts are saying if you consume foods high in calcium that supplementation is not necessary.  Frankly, I would be more concerned about having adequate levels of magnesium than calcium, it is safe to take as a supplement, it is common deficiency in most people, and it is involved in hundreds of metabolic processes in the body that are essential to optimum health.  With that being said, there are many other foods rather than milk that are high in calcium, such as moringa and other greens.  I personally use raw milk and raw milk cheese, but I use it for flavor, purity, and other nutritional factors such as CLA content.

I totally agree with Birage for Magnesium but men need to watch possible impact on the prostate. Use also Vitamin K to send calcium to the right place. Here just another study bad on milk for the prostate:

In my experience, Pycnogenol and vitamin K act contrary to each other; I much prefer Pycnogenol--I take it for optimum circulation, particularly in the legs.  Admittedly, my experience may be atypical.

How do they act contrary to one another?

Pycnogenol increases blood circulation; vitamin K reduces it.

I concur with the vitamin K, that is why I use the LEF's Super Booster/K.  The milk study on the prostate makes me think that one: how much milk was being used (they used the term 'high milk intake'), what kind of milk (would raw, organic milk have the same effect?),two: what other nutrients, or lack thereof did the participants consume, three: what else was their diet composed of that could have a possible negative effect on their health regarding cancer?  What I am saying is that there are many things that could make the prostate ripe for cancer.  A person could have a healthy complex diet, take various antioxidants, and other nutrients such as selenium, that are cancer protective, have a lesser genetic predisposition for cancer, exercise properly, consume fiber, lignans, etc. which are protective and still consume moderate amounts of milk without the same outcome as those studies.  Of course, dairy, red meats, alcohol, etc. can/should be consumed in moderation( without the fear of cancer).  To sum it up, when they do these studies they are not employing (which we can) cancer protective/preventative nutrients that would most possibly change the outcome of their studies.  I want to see double blind studies, one with milk and no nutrients, and milk with cancer protective nutrients, then I may be convinced of the evil of milk

I thought vitamin K thins the blood, thus INCREASING circulation?  Isn't this why it is prescribed to atherosclerosis patients, or advised to avoid if on blood thinning medication?
