“Milk does a body good!” This mantra has been beaten into our population for decades. The dairy industry has spouted benefits of strong bones and teeth, calcium and vitamin D. But how true is this?If you take a look at nature, humans are the only species that drinks the milk of other species. We are also the only species that drinks milk beyond infancy. As humans, we actually lose the enzymes used to digest breast milk around age 2 or 3 which is why a large portion of the population is considered lactose intolerant. The truth is we are all lactose intolerant. Dairy products are one of the most common allergens out there, yet most people don’t recognize it.
Sudden Infant Death
Uterine Cancer I know some people reading this will think I’m crazy. “Bone disease? Osteoporosis? But milk is supposed to strengthen bones and teeth!” Osteoporosis, for example is caused by ingesting too much protein. Dairy products are very high in protein and while they contain calcium, the calcium needs magnesium in order to be absorbed. Dairy products have very little magnesium. Studies have shown repeatedly that there are higher incidences of the above diseases in areas that consume high levels of dairy products as opposed to areas where dairy is not commonly consumed. So before you open the fridge again for a tall glass of milk, slice of cheese or bowl of ice cream, do a little research. Decide for yourself if milk is really doing your body any good.
