    One thought on “Re-Imagining Milk: Cultural and Biological Perspectives”

    1. A really interesting look at the politics and some of the subtle factors that play into milk consumption and advertising in this country. Discusses the prevalence of lactose intolerance/ lactase impersistance and the brings to question ethics of the tolerance treatment of those experiencing these symptoms. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in Anthropology, Milk consumption, United States Policies, or underlying implications of race and class in America.

    2. I can't remember everything about this book since I read it for a class a few years ago, but it did include interesting bits on lactose intolerance, and the new prevalence of milk sales in Asia (despite the prevalence of lactose intolerance there).

    3. Very informative read. Though full to the brim of statistics and facts, overall it provides a well-rounded exploration of the evolution of milk consumption in the world.
