Are you a milk drinker? Do you think milk is good for you? Why or why not?

No. My body doesn't like milk very much. Every time I have a cappuccino I take a risk.

Could you be lactose intolerant?

I don't drink milk, or eat cheese, but do seem to tolerate yogurt. I drink soy milk in my morning smoothie, but have stayed away from most milk products for a long time! I do think that in general if you aren't sensitive to it, it's a great source of vitamin D and protein. With all the vitamin D deficiency that seems to be getting news, I wonder if its the reduced dairy intake!

Milk hates me very much. However, I can eat icecream with no problems and when I eat cereal, I use very little dairy milk, and I don't have any problems. As for drinking it, negative.

Hahaha-a pusher-that's funny!

If I'm going to drink milk it won't be skim. To me, skim is just like water. I love good ole whole milk especially in a bowl of cereal.

Ick, not a milk drinker.... unless it's the remains from a bowl of cereal or I'm eating cream of wheat (for some reason, milk just goes with cream of wheat to me).

I do eat a lot of yogurt, cheese, etc. however to get in my dairy.
