      We know that the research results in animal cannot be directly mapped to people, but it is significant that it was demonstrated in several animal species how chronic exposure to D-galactose causes faster aging of cells and their shorter life expectancy. And the milk is the richest source of galactose, both in the form of monosaccharides and in combination with glucose in form of disaccharide lactose.
