Is animal milk healthy?
Back to question

Milk is somewhat healthy, but not absolutely necessary.

Milk does contain valuable nutrients, but these nutrients can be gotten through other foods too.

The Argument

Milk does have nutrients such as vitamin D and calcium, and the body can benefit from these nutrients. However, milk is not the only way to obtain these nutrients. Calcium rich foods include beans, almonds, and kale. Vitamin D can be received simply through exposure to sunlight. Milk in moderation can be a good way to get these nutrients. However, milk’s high fat content means other methods can often be a healthier alternative, and milk is not the only way to get these nutrients.

Counter arguments

-It is a lot more difficult to get nutrients from foods besides milk, because they are much lower in content. -Milk’s nutrients outweigh the negative effects of its fat content.


P[1] Milk is healthy because it contains nutrients. P[2] Milk is not necessary, because other foods can provide the same nutrients.
