MANILA - Allergic to cow's milk? Maybe because it was not created for you.

An expert explains, the allergic reaction may be because cow’s milk "is for the babies and not the adults," said Dr. Camille Lieners.

"The cattle drinks cow’s milk but the elder cow doesn’t drink. We are the only species on earth that drink milk all our lives and the problem is the protein in the milk is actually a very allergic compound," he told ANC's Headstart.
