Also, humans are the only animals in the animal kingdom to drink milk from another animal, and also the only ones to drink milk into adulthood.
So what gives? Why do we drink milk if naturally we weren't meant to consume it, and most of us can't even digest it?
What you actually mean is that humans are the only animals clever/devious enough to have devised a multitude of methods for extracting milk from other
species, resulting in an ability to consume it for a lifetime.
Tons of other animals, young and adult, will eat the milk or milk products from other animals if given the opportunity. Sometimes they will even nurse
from other species.
In nature there is no such thing as "meant" there is only "can" We weren't meant to consume dairy, but we can, so we do. That gave Europeans an edge
at survival at one point so it stuck around. Lions weren't meant to eat wildebeest, but they can so they do, because it gives them an edge to be able
to feed themselves!
Also not sure what's strange about the ability to consume dairy as being a result of a mutation, absolutely everything about your genetic makeup is
the result of a mutation. Something being the result of a mutation doesn't make it spooky or unnatural
There is a long list of diseases people have where they're unable to process certain chemicals or foods, it doesn't mean the rest of us are doing
something odd because we can process those things just fine and they can't. Each little group of people is just a bunch of humans customized for
specific environments and lifestyles, so there are going to be some differences that reflect that. I don't think it goes much further than that
personally, but feel free to continue reading into the social aspects of teat juice!
