Scientists at an Oxford museum are exploring the “political nature” and “colonial legacy” of milk as part of a new project, with one expert saying milk is a “northern European obsession” imposed on other parts of the world.

Dr. Joanna Zetterstrom-Sharp believes that milk, as an essential component of human nutrition, “can be interpreted as white supremacy.” He bases his scientific findings on the fact that the number of adults diagnosed with lactose intolerance is exceptionally high in countries other than Europe and North America. The researcher also drew attention to the cessation of local milk production in Africa in favor of industrial methods that aim to produce larger quantities.
