Infant consumption of cow’s milk puts her at higher risk for dehydration, resulting from excessive protein and minerals found in cow’s milk needing to be excreted through urine.85 Modern cows lactate while they are pregnant, which results in elevated estrogen levels in milk which has been linked with early sexual maturation in children, lower testosterone levels in males, as well as some cancers. Cow’s milk is designed for growing calves (not humans) who begin their lives weighing 100 pounds and reach 800 pounds by the time they are weaned.
