Lactose Intolerant
When we get up in the morning our bodies take a while to produce pepsin in the stomach. All items you purchase made from pasteurized cows milk have the ability to cause some people digestive problems because pasteurization changes the milk sugars and enzymes that can cause disruption.
People with this problem can use any product make with whole raw milk.
But the milk industry has encouraged laws to be passed in 25 states outlawing the sale of or consumption of unpasturized milk or milk products.
Fortunately, I found a farmer who sold me a share (for $20) of his milk cow and we consume about 3 gallons a week. The wife makes butter and butter milk and I make yogurt and we all drink the fresh milk without and side effects.

Nature knows what our bodies need.
The best book on milk I have read is Dr. Douglas Campbell's Milk Book.
