People get the same nutrients that are found in milk, from other sources that are not milk itself... because milk is not the necessary source for those nutrients. There are various foods that contain the same nutrients as milk and it is perfectly healthy to consume those foods instead of consuming milk. As long as you have a balanced diet with the proper amount of nutrients, then your diet is healthy. Milk is not a necessary component of a healthy diet.... claiming that it is would be false.
