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.
