India is chiefly a vegetarian country. Milk is one item that has always been a favorite all over the nation. According to Modern Nutrition Science, there are proteins essential for human nutrition which can be made available only from animal sources. This could be the basic reason as to why in the Indian traditions of vegetarian diets allow milk and its products as essential for human diets.
Late diabetes, heart disease, bone and joints related diseases mostly in women appear in large numbers in the Indian population especially in the urban areas due to wide spread supply of milk from crossbred high yielding European cows instead of Indian breeds of cows. People these days prefer to stay inside rather getting a little exposure to natural sun light. This causes Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency results in poor bioavailability of essential minerals like Calcium for skeletal health. Milk obtained from Gir cows is rich in vitamin D thus nourishes the body.
