milk

  1. Milk isn’t healthy for humans

    What all that milk is really doing to you

    It's the scam of the century!

    Milk doesn't "do a body good," as the old commercials said, and a milk mustache isn't a sign of good health to show off proudly.

    If anything, it's like wearing a big sign that says...

    BILKED BY MILK!

    In fact, just about everything you've heard about milk isn't based on science or biology.

    It's a toxic mix of marketing and politics, and an explosive new report from Vox Media is opening America's eyes to the great dairy swindle.

    Unlike any other industry in the nation, Big Dairy has a sweetheart deal with the feds where -- under law -- the U.S. Department of Agriculture is REQUIRED to promote milk, cheese, and other dairy products.

    The industry pays into a fund for the marketing programs, but it's the government itself that has to push this stuff on children and adults alike -- despite the fact that at least a quarter of Americans literally can't stomach the stuff thanks to dairy allergies.

    Many millions more suffer from milder dairy sensitivities, which means up to 60 percent of the world's population has at least some problem digesting milk.

    Meanwhile, just about all of the supposed "benefits" of milk are based on a huge lie -- starting with the biggest one of all: You need the calcium in milk to develop healthy bone.

    While dairy does contain a lot of calcium, it's not in a form your body can use very well... and studies even show that seniors who drink the most milk actually have a HIGHER risk of bone breaks and fractures.

    You're much better off getting calcium from other sources such as spinach, which contains almost twice the calcium per cup, as well as other healthy greens.

    So when it comes to cow's milk, follow this one simple rule: Drink as much as you want... whenever you want... if you're a baby cow.

    It has everything a cow needs for growth, like insulin-like growth factor-1, a.k.a. IGF-1.

    If you're a human, it's time to quit -- because excess IGF-1 is known to promote cancers of the breast, lung and prostate.

    Dairy can also cause all sorts of other issues inside the human body -- and you may not even realize just how much harm it's causing.

    I have patients tell me all the time how much better they feel after giving up milk -- it's as if a fog has lifted, the rain has blown off, and they're finally well-rested and raring to go.

    If you still need something to lighten your coffee and add to your recipes in place of milk, consider some of the many healthy alternatives out there, including nut milks and hemp milk.

  2. GM cow’s milk shows why we don’t need that milk at all

    'New' cow's milk is every bit as bad as the old

    I've been warning you about the serious problems with genetically modified crops such as corn, including the new study linking them to a higher risk of huge and deadly tumors.

    Today, I want to warn you about a new threat from genetic modification -- because scientists aren't stopping with corn - they're moving on to cow's milk. They're hard at work trying to engineer a better cow than the one God gave us.

    You know how well that's going to work out, right?

    The idea is to create a cow that produces milk with less of a protein responsible for some allergic reactions. They've already created one -- it's a cow named Daisy, and her milk has very low levels of the protein beta-lactoglobulin, which is responsible for many of the allergic reactions in babies and children.

    Many, but not all of them -- in fact, between half and 80 percent of children and babies are allergic to something else in cow's milk, and removing the beta-lactoglobulin won't do a thing for them.

    It also won't help adults, who are much more likely to be allergic to casein instead -- and ironically, Daisy's milk actually has higher levels of that.

    So they can tinker with cow DNA all they want, but even if they manage to remove absolutely everything that could possibly cause an allergic reaction in everyone, what would be left? Would it even be cow's milk at that point?

    There's a much simpler solution that would end milk allergies in all people for good -- and that's to simply stop drinking cow's milk. We're the only creatures on earth that drink the milk of another animal, and I think this is one case where the rest of nature got it right.

    But we keep getting it wrong.

    Just look at what our own bodies are trying to tell us about cow's milk. Nearly everyone has some kind of reaction to it, even if it's not immediately obvious. And in addition to the millions of Americans who suffer from diagnosed milk allergies, some 30 million others are lactose intolerant and can't even digest it.

    To me, that's as sure a sign as any that cow's milk simply wasn't designed for the human body.

    Besides, most of what you've heard about the benefits of milk simply isn't true. Vitamins A and D, for example, are lost when the fat is removed and have to be added back in later.

    We talk about getting vitamins from food, but when it comes to A and D in milk, you're basically getting a supplement.

    And while milk is loaded with calcium, the milk itself actually blocks you from absorbing it. It does this so effectively that you only absorb about a quarter of the calcium in each glass of milk -- and that's why people can drink milk every day and actually end up badly deficient in this essential mineral.

    So save the cow for steak night. When you want milk, try coconut, almond, hemp, or hazel nut milk enriched with calcium instead.

    If you've lived on regular milk for years it might take a little getting used to, but most people actually come to appreciate the richer and more flavorful taste once they make that adjustment.

  3. The dark truth behind milk

    It might seem like there's nothing more natural than a kid with a glass of milk -- but what's in that glass could be anything but natural.
