Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"
"Lactose maldigestion exerts no adverse effects on the absorption and utilization of protein, vitamins and other essential nutrients in milk and milk products. On the contrary, milk continues to be an important source of animal protein, riboflavin, calcium and other essential nutrients. Even part of the energy of lactose that is undigested in the small intestine is recovered by absorption of fermentation products in the colon."
"Acceptability of Milk and Milk Products in Populations With a High Prevalence of Lactose Intolerance," American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 1988
