We know that children should be fed breast milk until it can be replaced by other foods, which will be gradually added until it is completely replaced. This occurs at approximately 2 years of age. In mammals there is an enzyme called "lactase", which is necessary to properly absorb lactose (a sugar component of milk, important in the first months of life). Children have the lactase enzyme until the age of 3 years, since after weaning it should not be necessary.
In short, cow's milk is harmful due to high levels of lactose. These levels increase oxidative stress and chronic inflammation in people.
