Good milk / Bad milk

Dobré mléko / Špatné mléko

How come milk is popular and considered healthy in some parts of the world, but in other parts of the world it makes people sick? Did some of us evolve to be able to digest milk? Scientists have found out that there is a specific gene involved, the lactase gene. People with one version of the gene can digest milk, whereas people with another version cannot. Evolutionary biologists discovered that human evolution goes faster than expected.
