Sweetened condensed milk is made by evaporating some of the water from milk and adding sugar. So yes it does contain milk as your wikipedia link in your original question stated.

There is a possibility of death due to injury and eventual infection if a dairy cow is not milked. Many wild or "less-domesticated" (if you'll allow) breeds of cattle, bison and other bovines don't suffer from the same danger.

There are local hot spots if you don't mix the milk after microwaving. Babies really do get burned by microwaved milk; there is an actual danger the medical community is trying to prevent when giving advice not to microwave milk.

It's bad for most cats. To digest lactose, mammals require the enzyme lactase. As mammals grow to adults, lactase production decreases (as you would expect after weaning). Cow's milk contains much more lactose than cat's milk. Undigested lactose leads to diarrhea. Severe diarrhea can be fatal. Cats and Dairy Fact 1: Lactose Intolerance Is the Norm Just like ...

Generally agree with @Malvolio's answer, though to expand on a claim within the article as requested: "a strong correlation to calcium consumption and an increased risk of prostate cancer, unproportionally affecting African men.

TLDR It depends. Evidence suggests that many cats at least, can drink milk in some forms, particularly unpasteurized milk. There was a famous series of studies done on, among other things, cats and milk consumption, by Dr. Francis Pottinger, in the 1930s and 1940s. As the study has been around so long, the results have been analyzed time and again, and you ...
