Patient discussion about cow

Q. Does cow's milk cause acne? I'm 16 years old guy, and I have acne for several years now. Lately, although I treat it as my dermatologist instructs me, it seems I have more zits, particularly on my face. My friend told it can be because for the last few months ago I've been drinking a cup of milk for breakfast (I almost didn't drink milk at all before that). Is it true? The acne really makes me miserable, and the last thing I want to do is to make it worse. Thanks!!!

A. Regardless of what milk does to your acne, emotional stress can also make it worse, so first of all, try to relax- it'll make feel better and can also make your acne better, so it'll make you feel even better. Try to avoid milk for some time and see what helps you most. No one really proved milk has any influence on acne, so you shouldn't feel like you you're responsible for your acne.

Q. Is soy milk as good as cow milk? what`s good about soy milk and when it should be avoided. Is soy milk as good as cow milk?

A. Remember this, we are the only mammals that drink the milk of another! Do you get the urge to suckle while driving by a farm with cows or goats?
I wish I saved the article from someone I communicated with years ago online from New Zealand. Soy is really NOT a good food source! Please investigate further. Why is it that we are so "milk" conscious? Has the American Dairy Association brain washed us? Good righ, organic grains and veggies are the best food choices!

The government's "hostility to accountability underscores the need for a UN-led international investigation of the killings to help expose the extent of the abuses and to determine possible targets for a criminal investigation, including possible prosecutions for crimes against humanity," Kine said.
"Each day, the death toll from the government's war on drugs climbs higher and higher," Kine complained, adding, "These killings suggest Duterte's aggressive rhetoric advocating violent, extrajudicial solutions to crime in the Philippines has found willing takers."
Kine said: "Afghanistan's new government will need to address the security threats from all sides before journalists will have confidence that they can go to work without risking their lives".
"The Taliban should assist the operations of mobile vaccination teams rather than interfere with their lifesaving work," added Kine.
Human Rights Watch deputy Asia director Phelim Kine also accused the Aquino administration of insulting victims and trying to downplay the problem, citing recent remarks by an Aquino spokesman that violence against press members was "not that serious." "The killing of another Filipino journalist yesterday should prompt the Aquino administration to revisit its views about media killings in the Philippines and, more importantly, ensure that this recent murder and the ones before it are investigated fully," Kine said in a statement.
