Lactose is just a by product of cows milk. I have never heard nor does it make sense that cows milk or the abundance of such would cause OP. Never heard about plants being good either. What I do know is that looking at a chart which you can get from a google search, we don't have the needed calcium in an easy to obtain source.
Sorry, you lost me at needing cow's milk as a calcium source. It's actually quite a poor one due to high protein content leaching even more calcium out of our bodies than it provides (hence high milk producing/consuming countries having higher rates of osteoporosis).
Plant sources are much better at providing useful calcium, and our prior/natural & varied diets likely would have handled this wonderfully.
This also overlooks the fact that most of humanity is lactose intolerant...
Will come back to try to give the rest a fair shake later, but...hrm. Can't do it now
If that were true, we woudln't have super mega suppliment stores, as we would have adapted to the food we have and it would be fitting. If we would have adapted to the food we eat we wouldn't struggle with diets, and diebetes, and IBS, and chrones disease, and need dieticians. There is a plethora of proof that our food wasn't meant for us. I don't know that target food was intelligently designed but I know its mandatory for balance. And yes only the strong survive, but when you see desperation acts like that its only because things are out of balance and that is not natural. If we are suppose to evolve like you say or adapt to the food we have then why did we go from drinking raw cows milk to now having to pasturize, homogenize and fortify it? It's backwards, and almost everything in our food agenda is like that.
This doesn't prove evolution wrong. At best it is support for intelligent design, but your failure is assuming that one can exist. It is possible that both can exist, so you are not proving anything wrong, especially evolution. But anyway...
Target food isn't intelligently designed for a species, a species adapts (evolves) to make use of what it has. If it can't, it dies off. Only the strong survive - Darwin. If it can survive long enough, its body will undergo changes to make the environment more easily tolerated.
Nondairy Foods with Calcium Getting enough calcium can be a especially hard if your kids are allergic to milk. These nondairy foods can be good choices for kids with milk allergies who need calcium
