The health effects of milk may depend on the breed of cow it came from.
Currently, A2 milk is being marketed as a healthier choice than regular milk.
Casein is the largest group of proteins in milk, making up about 80% of the total Protein content.
There are several types of casein in milk, and beta-casein is the second most common. Beta-casein exists in at least 13 different forms.
Regular milk contains A1 beta-casein, which is partly broken down to beta-casomorphin-7 (BCM-7) in the stomach. BCM-7 has been linked with several adverse health effects.
This Comparision takes an objective look at the science behind A1 and A2 milk.
Type 1 diabetes is typically diagnosed in children, and is characterized by a lack of insulin in the body.
Several studies indicate that drinking A1 milk during childhood may increase the risk of type 1 diabetes
