Milk is one of the most important elements needed for the growth of our body. The day we are born, the first meal that we receive is the mother’s milk called as ‘colostrum’ which is a rich source of immunity and for the next six months the child is given only mother’s milk. Our body grows and develops from milk. It contains all the proteins, fats, nutrients which we need for our basic process of growth. Deficiency of milk does not show its effects immediately but it harms us in the long run. Without milk our bodies become weak and we become lethargic and our energy levels drop.

Though nowadays we do not get pure milk. Getting milk with half water was okay but the story doesn’t ends here. Nowadays people, for their selfish motive of earning money mix harmful chemicals in our milk just to increase its quantity and not even thinking of the consumers at once, but all we have learn from our childhood is that milk is the most important product for our body and so our mommies don’t get tired to make us drink more of it.
