Does anyone know of a reliable source of organic milk towards the Bricklayers' Arms end of Tower Bridge Road? I really want to buy from local, independent shops, but those I've tried tend not to have it, or else to overprice it big time. Or else it hangs around in the fridge a bit too long. Last two of which may,of course, be because there's not much call for it.
Do you mean cows' milk, or goats' milk, sheeep milk, cat milk, rat milk or dog milk? Which mammal's lactate do you desire? Surely it can't be proper for a human adult to ingest the udder juice of another species? Apart from the ethical issues of the meat & dairy industry, the environmental impact of that industry, there are the health concerns. You cannot be serious?
Duh? It makes about as much sense as mammals eating the roots of vegetables or seeds. In other words it's fine to eat anything you can digest ( I believe some milk isn't well digested by adults, but one does get some nutrients from it, and the calcium is very good for adult women). Let's not bring ethics into this thread because that should be for a new subject heading as all the "nuts" come out.
Jerry - what a bad-tempered comment! An ethical challenge in a discussion about "organic" milk seems perfectly in order, even if you disagree with it.
Your own position ("it's fine to eat anything you can digest") seems to be entirely ethics-free. But people who do think a bit harder about what they eat and the consequences of eating it aren't necessarily nuts.
Jerry, I don't see the comparison. Eating roots & seeds seems like an ideal way to derive protein & carbs, while spinach contains more calcium than cows' milk. Which threads should we confine ethics to?
We have organic milk here in our office, despite being in a large chilled cabinet with a tap..it does seem to go off quickly, so I can imagine it would go bad far more quickly than non organic milk.
I like Cravendale semi-skimmed, especially as I was told by a relative who works as a food scientist/inspector that that was the only milk he would ever drink due to the purity and double filter thingys..
