Hi there...I can understand your concern. It is safe for people above 60 years to drink milk. 1 or 2 glasses per day can be given safely. Infact milk is very rich in calcium, which is important for maintainence of the bone density. However if there's any reaction to drinking milk, then kindly consult a gastroenterologist for further evaluation.
