“Milk does the body good,” right? And we need milk for calcium don’t we?
According to television commercials milk really does the body good. But is that true? It sure makes sense. After all, milk is mentioned in the Bible. Abraham gave milk to the visiting angels in Genesis 18:18. And God described the promise land in Exodus 3:8 as flowing with milk and honey. So if God created it, it must be good. Right? It depends on whether it is consumed in its natural raw form, or in a commercially denatured, toxic form.
Pasteurized, Homogenized Milk now ranks as the number one food allergy in the US. Kurt Oster, MD, Chief of Cardiology and Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Park City Hospital in Bridgeport, CT states “Milk has been changed over the years by processing into an unrecognizable physio-chemical emulsion which bears very little resemblance to the original, natural, and nutritional milk.”
Dairy foods include cheese, yogurt, milk, casein (added to processed foods), ranch dressings, mayonnaise, milk chocolate, etc.
7 Dairy Health Risks (Even if it’s organic)
1. Difficult to Digest
How many times have we heard “I am dairy intolerant”. Processed dairy is difficult to digest and it is also another common allergen, it creates gastrointestinal distress, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, & liver/gallbladder congestion.
2. Mucous Producing
Clogs the tissues and organs resulting in congestion and inflammation, which again leads to disease.
3. Strong Inflammatory
Again, due to the mucus producing nature of dairy that clogs vital organs.
4. Exacerbates & Causes respiratory problems
- Sinus infections
5. Dairy Promotes Cancer
All animal food (including dairy) increase IGF-1 (a growth hormone produced by the liver) levels in the body. This IGF-1 growth hormone has been shown to promote cancer significantly. When you stop eating animal food, IGF-1 levels drop significantly.
6. Contains Antibiotics & Growth Hormones (non organic)
Which may lead antibiotic resistance, bowel disease, and cancer.
7. Highly Processed – Homogenization and Pasteurization
Destroys enzymes, proteins, vitamins, minerals, & beneficial bacteria. Results in loss of up to 60% of its fat-soluble vitamins, and up to 50% loss of Vitamin C. Vitamins B6 and B12 are completely destroyed, and 38%-80% of the water-soluble vitamins are destroyed. Synthetic D is often added back into commercial milk, further unbalancing the nutrient profile. The synthetic form of Vitamin D promotes calcification of soft tissues and softening of hard tissue such as bones. Calcium availability is decreased by 50% or more as well.
