That whole argument was once brought up on a BBC documentary about breast-feeding your kids. ie Why were you giving them the milk of another species? ,and then wondering why they got asthma ,allergies ,fat etc. One graphic part of the programme had a bunch of people standing in a circle holding up cards with the name of all the vitamins , minerals ,essential bacteria in breast milk on them, ( big circle )One by one they had to put the cards down if they weren't in cows milk. You can guess the result. only two cards left standing.. Cows milk is for calves... end of

GeniB----How does shaming women who are unable to breast feed their babies help. There are many reasons for asthma, allergies, obesity etc. that are nothing to do with breast feeding.
Throughout history cow milk has saved countless lives of children and adults in poverty and hard times.

Not everyone can breastfeed though, so I'm not into that kind of shaming at all. There is nothing wrong with formula. I was formula fed, my daughter had to be formula fed because if my wife didn't take her blood pressure medications she would actually die.

Anyway, I just said it's *weird* that we drink the milk of other species, I'm not in any way against it except that I don't enjoy the taste.

I like cow's milk but like most things it's down to personal taste, scouse isn't a fan either. I like it extra cold on my cornflakes, I wouldn't like to replace it with breast milk

I can use milk on cereal because it picks up the flavor, and I put it in tea. I just can't sit down and drink a glass of it when it isn't in its chocolate form.

Waiving these sanctions seems like a little patch on a big problem, caused by Trump breaking the Iran deal. If he's counting on Netanyahu to be the guardian and destroy Iranian nuclear facilities if and when they think a bomb is being developed (as they have promised), he's putting a lot of trust in someone possibly as corrupt and morally bankrupt as himself. Since Israeli intelligence on Iran's nuclear program is probably better than anyone else's, that makes sense, but like Trump, Netanyahu can't be trusted to act in national interests and not his own. There are no savory players there; all nations involved have brutal and undemocratic aspects to their governments. The United Nations is toothless and useless as long as UNSC members have the power of veto and don't have to obey resolutions against them. They're only good for policing 3rd world brush-fire wars.

If we truly are doomed to the inevitability of a nuclear attack, I have found a handy guide to help us get through such trying times.
