You gotta pay for that, and I'm afraid it's just gonna be correlation = causation all over again.

There is no consensus in the paleo community when it comes to milk.

Paleo purists avoid all dairy products, because the odds are pretty high that pre-agriculture man did not consume any dairy. Others include the entire range of milk products (primal paleo).

I have a compromise position. I avoid dairy products that are high in lactose (like milk), but include low sugar dairy products (butter, cheese, heavy cream). It seems to be working for me.

Dairy is one of those things where there really isn't a right answer, because it affects everyone somewhat differently. You need to find what works for you.

One thing close to everyone in the paleo community would agree on is soy products are bad. Use the search here and look for soy or soybean. Bluntly, if I was forced to choose between eating a wheat product and a soybean product, I'd eat the wheat.

Soya is high in omega-6's (unhealthy for you, especially your liver) and is a grain, so most people here would advise against using soy, and so will I....

Milk....it contains sugars like lactose and some proteins that some people can be allergic too. Its not really a paleo food. No other animals consume anything like milk past infancy. On the other hand, its a good source of fat. I myself eat aged cheddar but not other dairy, because it doesnt have the milk sugars (its less than 0.04% lactose unlike other unlike other dairy products) and its very tastey and a pretty good way to add fat and calcium etc...

If your thinking hot drinks, id probably recommend almond milk. But it seems wise not to go overboard on nuts either. They also have high omega 6s. Or for desserts coconut cream (which can be whipped if you chill it first). But then theres little need really for milk. Omlettes dont need milk, drinks can survive fine without them, and if you want something creamy for having some berries or fruit with, coconut cream does the job....

If you arent intolerant to milk, and dont mind the hidden sugars, I dont see the harm. Whereas if you use a milk alternative, like almond or soy, youll have to eat lots of fish or take fish oil to compensate the high omega 6s, which is hardly ideal.

As for if anything is healthy or not, the final judgement is hard to make......something youll have to think about urself...

If you tolerate dairy (meaning that you have eliminated it from your diet for at least 30 days, then reintroduced it responsibly and have come to the conclusion that it does not negatively impact your health), then raw or raw fermented dairy is probably okay.

Soy is definitely NOT a good choice.

If you need a milk substitute, try coconut milk.
