I don't know what might be in it, but my son had recurrent ear infections when he was small. A friend at the time advised me to cut out dairy, that was when there weren't a lot of alternatives (early 80's). So I never got to really tell if it was dairy but I have read in many health and nutrition books that dairy is very often the culprit with ear infections.

I do not believe that cow milk nature meant for a baby cow is something humans should consume. Of course, you've heard all the arguments -- humans are the only animals who drink milk after weaning, and that of another species to boot -- and it's true. If you want to win, go with nature, and realize that cow's milk is a very foreign thing to the human body. It just makes sense. There are many, many ailments, some serious, that are linked to cow's milk consumption, including juvenile diabetes.

There are so many great alternatives available now, there is just no reason to consume dairy. There are many kinds of "milk," soy, hemp, almond, rice; great products such as SoyDelicous ice cream which you cannot distinguish from ice cream made from dairy; "sour creme" and "creme cheeze," among other things. The only thing they really haven't duplicated perfectly is cow milk cheese, which I sincerely believe has addictive qualities and once you stop consuming it and some time passes you no longer even want to eat it. You can discover other luscious toppings for pizza and quesadillas, healthier and still yummy ways to make dishes like mac and cheeze.

I quit doing dairy between 1993 and 2000, in steps, cheese was last. I used to get colds once or twice a year, I now get maybe one every four or five years. I sincerely believe that it has something to do with it, besides the fact that of course I consume loads of fruits and vegetables.

Give it a try! You might be very pleasantly surprised at how much better you feel and taking antibiotics is no fun. My son has reduced hearing because his eardrum eventually collapsed from all the ear infections, I still feel guilty today for not listening to that friend and taking him off dairy.
