Milk has been marketed in the United States for decades as containing all sorts of nutrients that benefit our health. Some of these benefits they tout are calcium, protein, potassium, and vitamin D. And milk is designed for baby animals. Now, there's no question that milk contains all of these nutrients, and of course it makes sense, right? Because milk is designed specifically to help baby animals survive, give them the nutrients they need when they can't feed themselves. Milk is also brilliantly designed to help babies to grow really fast. That's because the longer that babies are helpless out in nature, if they can't survive on their own, obviously [makes throat cutting sound]. So milk is incredibly designed to pack on pounds, and how does milk do that? Well, according to the US Department of Health & Human Services Office on Women's Health, milk has just the right amount of fat, protein, water, and sugar to ensure a baby thrives. What? Wait a minute. Rewind.
Fat, protein, water, and sugar. What? Did she just say sugar? Yeah, I think that's what I just heard. Yup. Sugar. Now, we're not talking about the added kind of sugar that you see in all sorts of processed foods. Milk naturally contains sugar and it's called lactose, and I know you all have heard about lactose because you've heard, obviously, of lactose intolerance. Lactose is a sugar. It's very similar in structure to other sugars like glucose and sucrose. Lactose is sugar, and just like other sugars, lactose is absorbed very quickly into the body. It's digested quickly and absorbed quickly, and then it's turned into energy. And, like other sugars, if you don't use that sugar right away your body is going to store it as fat. Now, for babies that makes total sense, right? Babies need to grow. Milk is specially designed to make them grow. If you've ever noticed, after a baby feeds what's the first thing they do? [snores loudly] They fall asleep, and that's nature's way of helping them to grow. By not expending that energy right away, they're able to pack it on in fat pounds and ensure their survival. But as babies grow up and they're able to provide their own nutrients without assistance from their mother, all animals stop consuming milk for good. Oh, wait, except us. It's a fact that humans are the only animal to continue to consume milk into adulthood. Hmm...interesting. Another interesting fact about milk is that 60% of the adult world population is unable to digest milk properly. Hmm...well, that's kind of weird that we can't digest milk. Well, no, it's not because we're not supposed to be able to digest milk. We're adults. We're supposed to be providing nutrients for ourselves in all sorts of other ways. It's nature's way of telling you you've got to get off of...yeah. In fact, a whole bunch of scientists don't even look at lactose intolerance as a disease. They actually look at an adult's ability to tolerate lactose as lactase persistence, meaning, if you can tolerate milk then you've got some sort of weird ability to do that as an adult, and that is only 40% of the adult world population.
