  • ​Goat’s milk is a bit lower in lactose than cow’s milk and has a different type of casein, a protein found in all animal milk. For these reasons, some people with sensitive stomachs may find goat’s milk easier to digest. If you are lactose-intolerant or are allergic to milk, you may need to choose lactose-free versions or avoid all animal milk. Both types of milk are rich in protein and have similar nutrients. Goat’s milk is higher in calcium, but cow’s milk is higher in B vitamins and selenium.
  • Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that is needed for a strong immune system. Lemons contain plant nutrients called limonoids. In cell and animal studies, limonoids destroy cancer cells. More research is needed in people to know if limonoids have the same effect in our bodies.
