Regarding the obelisk, someone really, really likes phalluses. That's all.
It's another male way of saying "My dick is bigger, all repent!"

Havent you wondered why it might be that Harvard (you know those people who own America) would like you (and all men) to quit drinking/eating something that is healthy?
what do you think is healthy about cow milk. Studies have shown it aids the growth of tumours in our bodies. We do not absorb the calcium from milk. It is full of antibiotics and hormones...

...All jokes aside.. -ahem-. I don't see this as much of a surprise. We all know that they inject our meat with growth hormones, estrogen, etc. It's whatever helps the animal produce what we need from it more quickly. Keep giving a cow estrogen, it'll keep giving milk at a rapid pace. Keep feeding cattle, chickens, and other livestock growth hormone, they'll grow up faster and will be slaughtered sooner to feed the consumer. They care about speed and production, not so much about what happens from there. I wouldn't be too worried about it though, people may eat cheese pretty regularly but many people forget to drink their daily amounts of milk for their bones (me included with the rest of the general population. ) I just don't think anyone is going to be harmed just yet by it but we will indeed need to see what happens because advanced levels of estrogen have been linked to forms of cancer... But then again everything in the world nowadays gives you cancer it's starting to seem so just live life, enjoy the hell of a ride, and whatever comes comes and can be dealt with when it does. Cancer runs in my family pretty commonly so I don't plan to live to be very old so I'm enjoying the time that I have now.

I've been drinking milk since I was born, I drink A lot of milk, 2%, slim, 1%, whole, I don't care, it's milk I like it.
Now I am 31, a male, in the USA. I am 6'3, 230lbs, I am muscular, Hairy and about as Manly as I can get.
Where's all the estrogen and Moobs I've been told I'm gonna have?
I also eat cheese like it's my life blood. I still gain muscle when I work out, I don't have Moobs, I haven't had the urge to suddenly cry at the sunset, and I am pretty sure my sperm count is ok, as I have 3 kids, doing fine.

Lactos intolerance develops in all mammals naturally once they move on to solid foods, it's by continually flooding the system with milk that our bodies adapt, and break down the dairy. The reason, they don't want people to eat raw milk, is that raw milk contains bacteria that helps our digestive systems break the milk down, as well as other bacteria, nutrients, hormones ( additives,chemicals,growth hormones.) Sometimes harmful bacteria can be passed from unhealthy cows. Rather than risk it they cook it, destroying the bacteria leaving the milk nearly useless on it's own and leading to potential problems digesting the dairy products. Milk is intended for young, not adult mammals of any kind.

I didn't read through each comment but most cows are injected with a hormone called rbgh. This produces 15% more milk, and causes a lot of cows to get an infection called mastitis. They then pass pass the bacteria, pus, and dead blood cells on through their milk.
About 6 months ago I started drinking regular milk every single morning for about 4 months until i read this article. During that 4 months (im 25 fyi), I was started to get very painful acne, and I got an infection in my ear called otitis (sounds like mastitis). I highly doubt milk was the cause but I believe it a lot more harm then good. I've been drinking raw milk since and I rarely get a break out, and my ears have been doing much better
The headline to the article is pretty funny...

The hormones aren't just in milk. Hormones "estrogen" are in shampoo, fertilizer, insect killers, plastics, lotions, perfumes, cosmetics, etc.... Birth control pills. Other women walking around have hormone clouds floating around them. This is how a whole floor of college women in a dorm all end up menstrating the same week of the month as a group.
