1 June - World Milk Day
On average, a cow produces 6.3 gallons of milk each day. Milk was considered 'food of the gods' in ancient cultures. Milk is white because of its fat content. Although milk is composed of approximately 87% water, which is colorless, the fat and protein molecules floating inside it reflect all light wavelengths, making it appear white.
Drinking whole milk over low-fat milk helps you avoid gaining weight.
The average American consumes 18 gallons of milk in a year. While the entire nation goes through roughly 21 billion gallons annually, Americans drink more carbonated soft drinks, bottled water, and beer than milk.
