Did you know that milk and milk products cause diabetes 1 later in life?

    That's not what the studies said. Did you actually read the articles?

    Here's what one of the studies said: "Our observations raise the issue of whether oral exposure to foreign insulin plays a role in the autoimmune process leading to type 1 diabetes".  Their results "raise the issue"  - that means practically nothing other than the fact the researchers needed to publish an article because they got paid to do the study. 

    Secondly, the results pertain only to people who are genetically predisposed to diabetes: "All the infants included in the study had a first degree relative with type 1 diabetes and therefore were at an increased genetic risk of developing the disease." Does the same thing happen in infants that are not predisposed?  If so, that calls the entire study into question. 

    The only way those results would be related to diabetes later in childhood is if the antibodies to cow insulin are still present during later childhood, AND whether antibodies to cow insulin have any relationship to human insulin, of which there is no evidence for either one presented in the studies.

    All the conclusions from the study are speculative.

    Did you know, the human race has been drinking it for centuries and not all ended up with diabetes . Take your vegan hippie agenda somewhere else!

    Not any weirder than calling almond milk , milk .

    Total bull. If that’s true then every old person would have diabetes 1 and that’s just not true. Insulin might not be as effective but that’s more likely due to age than the long term effects of milk.
