Let's Unwrap The Mystery Of How Lactaid Works
We often eat our daily meals without even realizing all the things we don’t know about our food. Like the fact that cinnamon comes from the bark of a tree. Or that saffron is the stigma of an orchid. Our recent eggnog taste test made us wonder about another interesting food ― Lactaid, which surprisingly won the taste test. How on earth does Lactaid work, anyway? We’ve seen Lactaid milk at the supermarket for years, but what in the world is it, actually? Is it even real milk? If you realize you have that same question, you have come to the right place. We have answers. Most milk sensitivities are a r...

Students Send Message: Milk Is Garbage
Students are pouring hundreds of tons of plain milk into the garbage in Los Angeles schools each week. Maybe that's because more than 88 percent of Los Angeles Unified School District students are predisposed to suffer from lactose intolerance. But instead of providing a healthful nondairy beverage that students might drink, LAUSD is compelling students to drink more milk by offering chocolate milk, which it had stopped serving in 2011. Plain or chocolate, high-fat or low-fat, all milk can cause digestive symptoms, among other health dangers. And Latinos, African-Americans, and Asian-Americans who, according to the Nation...

No evidence organic milk in pregnancy lowers a baby's IQ
Conclusion Previous studies have shown that organic milk produced during the summer has lower iodine content than standard milk. This is said to have been the first study comparing the milks in the winter. It also found iodine concentration is lower in organic milk. During the winter, cows housed indoors receive more iodine supplement through their feed concentrate than grazing cows in the summer. Winter milk is therefore known to contain more iodine than summer milk. It may have been expected there would be less of a difference between organic and non-organic cows during the winter. But organic systems are known to rely ...

Africans' ability to digest milk likely due to spread of cattle raising
Babies are born with the ability to digest lactose, the sugar found in milk, but most humans lose this ability after infancy because of declining levels of the lactose-digesting enzyme lactase. People who maintain high levels of lactase reap the nutritive benefits of milk, however, offering a potential evolutionary advantage to lactase persistence, or what is commonly known as lactose tolerance.

Humans' ability to digest milk stems from the advent of cattle domestication in Africa
(Cell Press) Most people lose the ability to digest the milk sugar lactose after weaning, but some populations retain high levels of an enzyme called lactase, allowing them to break down lactose in adulthood. In a new study researchers identified genetic factors associated with lactase persistence and found that this trait became more prevalent with the introduction of cattle domestication in Africa. The findings provide evidence that lactase persistence evolved in human populations as a dietary adaptation. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)
