Firstly I would like to appreciate you to raise such an important question.
Well, I have surfed a lot on this topic and what I have found is that milk is not at all harmless unless its being injected.
It is said to be harmful because for better milk production,recombinant bovine growth hormone(rBGH) was injected into the cattle. But this rBGH, increases the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) in milk, which is related to cancer. But, to cause harm, these proteins have to be injected, as they are destroyed during the digestion process of the cow. So, these are not harmful to the human beings. But they pose harm to the cattle.

Milk is the best food for everyone. We should drink at least two glass of milk per day. Milk contains all vitamins and minerals essential for our body. But milk does not contains vitamin C. One person can be alive for long life if he consumes only milk. Be sure the milk is pure. At the present we cannot get pure milk and there are duplicate milk and milk products available in the market and that can be cause for health problems.
According to our shastras cow milk is called as a Amrit. We should consume milk and milk products.

I support Mr.Dinesh words. Nowadays, people are not interested and not able to maintain the cows. The prices are increasing for cow food, but the milk rate is same.
Its now very terrific to get original milk without adding water. Now, company are releasing milk products including powder. I recommend to use, fresh milk instead of powder.

Milk is definitely good for health. But there are exceptions. To some people milk may not suit their digestive system, they may get diarrhea or stomach ache after consuming milk, so doctors might have advised them to avoid taking milk and dairy products.
Milk has a natural source of calcium and potassium which are essential for our body and bones.
During the course of the day, one should have a glass of hot milk which will neutralize the intake of food throughout the day.

Milk is a food which can be used by almost everyone. It is a perfect food in itself and most useful for those people who are ailing. It is found most useful for those suffering from gastroptosis, or sagging down of the stomach.
Milk is of use in cases of Nephroptosis or balling kidney, because it automatically supplies fat. Milk is idicated in most of Gasric and Duodenal Ulcer cases.
Milk is highly charged with vitamins and organic mineral salts. Boiling or pasteurizing destroys the vitamins, therefore buy milk which is untreated, fresh, and clean.

First of all I would like to tell you that, please ask a question to yourself whether mather milk is good for health of a child or not. You will get an answer "yes".
Milk pronvides the primary source of nutrition and helps to reduce the risk of any diseases to a human being. Raw milk contains significant amounts of saturated fat, protein and calcium as well as vitamin C. Cow's milk has a pH which is making it slightly acidic.
Of course milk is good for health. But if you have any health problem then after consulting a doctor you should intake milk. Milk will never harm your health but if you already have any problem then it will work like petrol in fire.
