Let's discuss the good side and bad side.. here is my point of view:

Good Side:

Your body needs certain nutrients to function properly, and milk contains many of those nutrients. Dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt are naturally nutrient rich foods. Milk, hard cheese and yogurt are the number one source of calcium in the diet. They also contain a wealth of other key nutrients such as protein, riboflavin, vitamin B12, iodine, phosphorus and potassium, all of which play an essential role in a healthy diet. Calcium and other bone friendly nutrients found in milk and dairy are important in developing bone. This is particularly important in childhood and adolescent children as these are critical periods for bone growth and skeletal development...The dairy food group is also an excellent source of iodine, an important mineral needed to form hormones in the thyroid. These hormones are necessary for a number of body processes, including metabolism regulation and proper foetal brain development.

Bad Side:

Most dairy cattle are injected with a cocktail of hormones to artificially increase milk production. One of these, IGF 1 (insulin-like growth factor 1), stimulates the rapid growth of calves (and humans) by boosting the division and multiplication of all cells including abnormal ones. Perhaps not surprising that many studies have found a link between IGF 1 and various cancers and there's more..

Prostate cancer: Some evidence suggests that the consumption of milk and other dairy products leads to an increased risk of prostate cancer. Conversely, dairy-free diets may slow the progress of prostate cancer.

Acne: Multiple studies have linked all types of cow's milk to an increased prevalence of acne in both boys and girls.

Bone loss: Instead of promoting bone health, animal protein in dairy products can have a calcium-leaching effect. Dairy products almost certainly help the cause, not prevent, osteoporosis.

Cow's milk is not designed for human consumption... Cow's milk contains on average about three times the amount of protein than human milk does, which creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequence. Milk and dairy products are pro-inflammatory and mucus producing. Milk increases the risks of respiratory conditions and allergies. It has been linked to the development of arthritis due to joints becoming inflamed.

America has one of the highest consumption of dairy, yet one of the highest rates of osteoporosis. Excess calcium needs to excrete and the kidneys bear the load, which in turn contributes to the formation of kidney stones, which have a calcium composition. A glass of milk also contains acidic animal protein that leeches calcium from the bones, pus cells, faeces components, bovine growth hormone, antibiotics, and a whole lot of unnecessary fat, cholesterol and calories all of which create a terrible imbalance in the body."

In my point of view milk and dairy products are recognized as an important source of nutrition in human diets, providing energy, high quality protein and essential minerals and vitamins.
