You can thank the Mongols for that
No. The majority of mammals cannot consume dairy. Europeans, various Central Asian/Turkic/Mongol groups, and a sparse few Sub-Saharan African tribes are the only mammals period that can consume dairy after infancy. Specifically they lack the enzyme lactase which allows the break down of lactose in milk. The production of this enzyme turns off after infancy. In the groups that can drink milk however, a mutation occurred such that production of it never turns off.
Mizrahi Jews for example are lactose intolerant, as are most Arabs.
Lets learn together, friend.
Explanation of biblical law
The rabbis of the Talmud gave no reason for the prohibition, but later authorities, such as Maimonides, opined that the law was connected to a prohibition of Idolatry in Judaism. Obadiah Sforno and Solomon Luntschitz, rabbinic commentators living in the late middle ages, both suggested that the law referred to a specific foreign [Canaanite] religious practice, in which young goats were cooked in their own mothers' milk, aiming to obtain supernatural assistance to increase the yield of their flocks. More recently, a theogonous text named the birth of the gracious gods, found during the rediscovery of Ugarit, has been interpreted as saying that a Levantine ritual to ensure agricultural fertility involved the cooking of a young goat in its mother's milk, followed by the mixture being sprinkled upon the fields, though still more recent sources argue that this translation is incorrect. Another explanation is the separation accommodates significantly the large percentage of the population, particularly those who are aging, who are lactose-intolerant.
The biblical suppression of these practices was seen by some rabbinic commentators as having an ethical aspect. Sforno argued that using the milk of an animal to cook its offspring was inhumane, based on a principle similar to that of Shiluach haken, the injunction against gathering eggs from a nest while the mother bird watches. Chaim ibn Attar compared the practice of cooking of animals in their mother's milk to the barbaric slaying of nursing infants.
The general trend is correct but he has overblown it to include all.
Similarly, you're being an "all or nothing" fag as a means of refusing to acknowledge where he is correct.
I was wondering that re: Mexico given they throw chesse on everything.
Either they put up with a great deal of gastric distress for deliciousness or the more Indio among them don't consume as much.
Might have to consult some Mexibros.
Lactose intolerance doesnt kill you dumbass. Indians for example are more likely intolerant than tolerant, they still drink milk but just carry the consequences like smelly farts and not having time to take the poo to the loo
Yeah Leviticus was actually basically a survival manual for living in shitty levant squalor thousands of years ago.
Like trichinosis with the pork, shellfish can be questionable even when cooked properly given they are the sea's filtration systems.
I'd wager that this explanation
>Another explanation is the separation accommodates significantly the large percentage of the population, particularly those who are aging, who are lactose-intolerant.
Despite it's lack of citation in the Wiki is the most correct.
Can't make delicious jew proto-burgers for your mitzvah and have the more schwarz among the tribe get the runs.
Biologist here, most mammals are naturally lactose intolerant as adults. This is because most of them never drink milk after they are weaned. Evolution aim's for the most survival and propagation in the most efficient sense. Why would your cells waste energy synthesizing an enzyme you will never use after a certain age?
Then Homo sapiens go and domesticate some animals and realize milk is a really convenient food source. Some humans are mutants that continue producing lactase as adults and can continue digesting lactose. These don't starve as much and thus have more baby mutants and here we are today with different populations having different rates of lactose-intolerance (though as thats the default state we should really be talking about rates of lactose-tolerance) because of a multitude of genetic, environmental, and historical reasons.
Also percentages and trends are not be alls and end alls. If you can do something 90% of "your group" can't do it doesn't make the data bullshit it just makes you part of the 10%
>b-but pol is just a boogeymans!
Yeah nah you fucks are so easy to spot its unreal,go back to your containment board nobody wants you here with your autistic pop history and non constructive 1 line responses,anyone that studied the middle east history even if for 5 minutes knows that the only reason that middle easterners and mostly ones in arabia stopped being random travelling tribes doing fuck all was islam,to say that islam only made it worse just shows your ignorance on the subject and the fact that you're a storm faggot,if you're not gonna discuss history properly and just spout memes and shit talk anything that isnt HRE then fuck off back to pol.
Here is a better article.
This Nature one is also worth a look.
>Alcohol was invented here, but Muslims can't drink it
>Cheese was invented here, but Jews can't eat it with meat
Pretty sure places that didn't have any contact with outside civilizations for a long time had discovered these desu
Right but what is also fucked up is letting a bunch of manchild sperglords ruin debates by shout /POL/ WAA GO AWAY every time they read something they don't like.
It just derails the conversation from history and turns it into a shit slinging match and I'm tired of anything that offends someone being a cause to immediately drop the topic and start shitposting here.
If someone is wrong, prove them wrong or shut the fuck up about it.
Islam made the middle east great until the Mongols.
It ended the warring empires, it brought peace and stability and then scientific advancement
>inb4 THEY JUST COPIED STUFF meme
Stop denying history just because you dislike their modern descendants.
That image got debunked, check the lactose intolerance wiki talk page, theres a huge argument over it.
People eat dairy all around the fucking world. If you actually travel somewhere you usually find everything the internet says about it is wrong
The pig is sacred to the Jew. There's a story in the Bible about Jesus getting into a fight with a demon, he transforms himself into a pig and drowns during the fight. Then he comes back three days later, sees his shadow and goes back into his cave and we have six more weeks of winter.
So I check the wiki talk page:
4. China is now encouraging the consumption of milk and dairy products. So far, I have not heard of an epidemic of dead Chinese due to Lactose Intolerance.
>from drinking milk
>lactose intolerance kills you
This is why wiki talk pages are not good sources for your claims, moron.
Here you go retard, if you actually bothered to read journals/articles maybe you wouldn't have to rely on dumbass shit like Wiki talk pages to spout your bullshit.
How is it that countries like China and Japan still have high rates of lactose intolerance, then? They had cows too. Did they just never think to drink cow's milk, or where the conditions in those countries already prosperous enough so as to not result in the famine that would cause the gene to spread?
The idea was that it was dishonorable and kinda cruel to cook a child in its mother's milk, and if you had a supply of milk and a calf or lamb you decided to raise for a feast on a holiday, both the milk and the calf/lamb cam from the same source.
Nowadays I can be guarenteed (mostly through statistical chance) that my burger and chocolate milk didn't come from the same cow.
I don't know about the genetics, but culturally speaking I think milk consumption was considered by many Chinese to be a barbarian practice. Also, limited land for pasture, cattle being bred primarily as working animals, and the availability of soy as a protein source. Dairy has just never been a part of most Chinese cuisines until modern times.
