I was buying organic cow's milk. I started researching to see if the treatment of the cows was better, with organic milk.

Then, I learned that baby cows get taken away from their mothers immediately. They cry for each other. I learned that's how we get milk from cows. I never thought of it before that.

Then, I experienced so many benefits. My stomach felt so much better. Bloating and indigestion nearly disappeared. I always thought it was from all of the fruits and veggies I ate - I never guessed it was from dairy.  

Also, my joint pain greatly improved. I learned later that dairy can cause inflammation.
