Milk -We Still Don’t Know If It’s Good Or Bad For Us

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Milk2Studies abound, but there’s no clear conclusion as to whether milk is good or bad for us. Few things in life look as pure and simple as a glass of milk. The ingredient list on the carton is refreshingly short too. All it says is “milk,” perhaps along with some added vitamin A and vitamin D. No preservatives, no artificial colors, no high-fructose anything. Just milk.

But like many things that appear simple from the outside, there’s a lot going on beneath milk’s surface. That glass is swirling with natural cow hormones, which isn’t surprising considering the source. Milk contains sugars found nowhere else in nature, and it offers a particular blend of nutrients — including protein, calcium, magnesium and potassium — that you can’t get anywhere else.

Yet, almost 8,000 years after nomadic herders realized they could tug at the udders of slow-moving livestock, we still aren’t sure how much of the stuff we should be drinking. The USDA recommends three cups of dairy a day for all adults, but the science behind milk hasn’t been settled. “This is one of the most complicated and interesting areas of nutrition,” says Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, “and we don’t have all of the answers.” Read More

    Milk was and still bad for us.
    Scientific declarations are badly highly influenced by the milk industry.
    Let nature and logic talk for itself.
    Nature has evolved over millions of years. It created a self-sustaining and a very balanced and healthy life. Only modern life has messed up with, so let’s go back to nature:

    1. No other animal but human drinks the milk of another animal.
    2. No other animal but human drinks milk after quitting being a baby.
    3. Cow milk is intended to grow a bull within 6 months to 500 kg, human milk to grow humans within 18 years to… Isn’t the difference clear.
    4. A calf drinks 5 liters of milk a day (what the cow naturally produces), milk industry using hormones produces up to 50 liters of milk a day (10 times of the natural capability of a cow). The unnatural mixture is the milk that they tell you is good for your health. Is that logical?

    Endless medical reasons:
    - Milk promotes many allergies
    - Milk promotes cancer
    - Milk promotes diabetes
    - Milk promotes Osteoporosis (Loss of Calcium in bones)
    - Most of the milk includes huge quantities of growth hormones that do no dissipate upon drinking.
    - Cow milk includes a totally different combination of active ingredients that human milk. It is not intended for humans.

    And that that is not all..
    So does this answer the question?
