Milk--does a body good?

A couple of weeks ago this article caught my attention. I've heard before about how in several parts of the world people have a tendency toward lactose intolerancy because they don't all have the gene mutation that allows us to digest milk after we've been weaned off mother's milk. I'll admit that I rather enjoyed reading the article, but I suppose that could be in part because I don't particularly care for milk. Don't get me wrong, ice cream is delicious, and I don't know what I'd do without cheese, but a glass of milk? not so much. I'm not sure I'm ready to completely cut dairy out of my diet, but I do think I agree that humans weren't really meant to drink milk as adults.
