Why Does a Human, a Mammal, Have to Drink Milk of a Cow, Another Mammal?

Environmental Ethics 40 (1):57-79 (2018)

Why Chinese culture has turned to the use of cow’s milk needs to be reexamined. The reason given to the Chinese people is that the drinking of milk is scientifically supported. However, the actual drinking of cow’s milk has been and continues to be problematic for Chinese people since many have lactose intolerance. This problem leads to the larger question of why one might trust science for the answer all issues, especially when science is often working for corporate interests and not merely for truth.
