    We drink full cream non homogenized milk. We are not big milk drinkers, we only use 2lt every 7 days (sometimes less). I make my own butter from pure cream. Sometimes we add a little grapeseed oil to it to make it spreadable from the fridge.

    I've read that the issue of standard full fat dairy is to do with homogenization. Homogenizing milk is like putting it in a paint shaker to break up the fatty portion i.e. cream, into smaller globs spread evenly through the milk. Apparently these smaller globules aren't processed properly by our bodies and can cause cholesterol issues? I don't know much about the science behind it! We do however always buy non-homog milk with the thick lovely cream layer on top. And the lucky one who gets to open the fresh milk carton gets the giant blodge of cream poured right into their morning coffee... yum!

    Never liked fat free anything. Also margarine is really bad for you - trans-fats in marg are linked to cancer, last I read.

    Have you looked into 'cow shares'?

    Some dairy farmers will let you pay an 'investment' in their cows and you receive your dividends on a weekly basis in product...sound investment IMO....

    There are proven links between low fat milk and fertility problems in women. There are a couple of reasons for it. One is that the oestrogen that is a naturally occuring part of whole milk latches onto the fatty part of the milk, when the milk is skimmed it takes off the fat and the oestrogen with it. This leaves just the testerone in the milk which is contained in the main part of the milk. The lower fat content also inhibits your bodies ability to absorb the hormones and other nutrients in the milk.

    No wonder people get so confused.

    The national health and medical research council (dietry guidelines for Australia), The heart foundation Australia and The dieticians association of Australia all recommend salt reduced unsaturated margarine over butter.

    I am always of the opinion that closer to nature has GOT to be better.

    Those foundations ^^ probably have shares in Flora

    My kids only occasionally get any dairy. We use a2 full fat when they do. I have full cream milk every day in my coffee but that's it. Our ear nose throat specialist convinced me as both our kids are prone to sinus problems, ear infections.. my son is asthmatic. He said goats milk is actually better for humans.. but the kids don't like it.. I personally treat cows milk as a treat so therefore Im okay with full fat. If they drank a lot of consider switching to skim.. but it tastes awful to me.
