Pro and cons of milk.

Currently probabally have about 2 pints of skimmed milk per day across 3 shakes and in porridge. Have noticed a lot of people use water instead of milk, know the usual arguments about shakes with water possibly being slightly faster acting than with milk, interested in the other pros and cons of using milk rather than water both during periods of cutting and periods of bulking. Just read in a post from gaz in another thread milk is very insulinemic, does this mean it creates a big insulin response due to the lactose, if so guessin it would be good in PWO shake but not so good elsewhere???

    Are you cutting or bulking?
    i only use water in my shakes 1st thing and pwo, every other shake i use milk
    i drink 2 litres of milk a day and im fine!

    pwo you need a fast acting carb and protein shake so milk is no good here, i use rapid recovery formula from usn always have in water as its quicker into the bloodstream.

    Knowledge is power...keep educating yourself!

    Cons- could make acne more likely due to the hormones pesent

    Pros- cheap

    Personally I use soy light milk instead, its a healthier choice, not that it makes all that much difference.

    I love milk but if I have to much it gives me gut rot, when I have oats I use water I prefer oats with water.

    Water post workout, milk is used before bed for some as fat is suppose to slow digestion of protein.

    I use water all the time, the hormone debate about milk is questionable also.

    Waters cheaper, easier, and to slow digestion i just use a combo of proteins(Casein for example opposed to WHEY).

    Water wins, even though it makes alot of stuff taste like ****! Full fat milk if anything i guess mmmmm

    Bump for more discussion. I'm curious to see how people view this.

    richsINS, do you consider the fact that milk is potentially carcinogenic?

    More chance of getting cancer by breathing mate than drinking milk. Pollution, cigarette smoke etc etc

    There's lots of different conclusions on milk, some people say yes, some people say no.

    I personally dont drink it as i dont like it.

    It is argued that raw milk, i.e. pasteurised milk is toxic and carcinogenic once it gets past the pasteurised 'stage'.

    However, on the other side of the coin, people then state that pasteurisation reduces the chance of illnees due to drinking milk. Pasteurisation basically kills off bad bacteria in the milk which could potentially be harmful to humans.

    Food for thought:

    Plus bovine IGF1 is identical to human IGF1 and I believe an excess has links with prostate cancer..........not something I know anything about tbh.
    This link discredits it, however: http://www.igf-1-and-milk.com/

    so does that mean the bb'ers who use IGF-1 are more prone to prostate cancer as a result?

    No idea to be honest! Thats why I was hoping to start a discussion! If you have any better links or even studies that credit or discredit these theories, I'd be interested to expand my knowledge base!

    there are a few 'studies' linking the acceleration in those prone
