You’ve got to admit that “got milk” is a clever marketing scheme. The other successful gimmick to promote the milk monopoly was the celebrities with milk mustaches. These were successful ad campaigns designed to get you to buy more dairy products and pour them into your lifestyle. And why not, you thought milk was good for you. Yet we have record health issues including 20 million with osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. A pallet of milk will not save you from bone disease or other diseases. You might be surprised to know that dairy products increase your risk of developing serious diseases.
MILK IS POLITICAL
Everything today seems tied up in politics. The National Dairy Council (a non-profit) is funded by dairy farmers and check off dollars. The American Dairy Association (non-profit) was created to assist dairy farmers and is funded by dairy farmers and check off dollars. There is a local chapter of The National Dairy Council in each state (www.nationaldairycouncil.org).The dairy industry is controlled by unions. Check off dollars refers to union dues mandated by the US Department of Agriculture. The beef and soy industry have a similar structure. The function of the non-profits is to drive consumer spending on dairy products even if it means suppressing scientific research exposing it as hazardous to your health.
THE DAIRY INDUSTRY
You will see more reports come forth regarding the health problems dairy products cause. One story from the UK by scientist Jane Plant; published her discovery while undergoing chemo treatment for breast cancer. Professor Plant is a geochemist and chief scientist of the British Geological Survey. Her book is titled Your Life in Your Hands. She founded the BCUP foundation to promote the truth about the negative contribution dairy (milk) products make to breast cancer. For her work, Professor Plant was awarded Britain’s highest science award, The Lord Kilgerran Prize. In a nut shell Professor Plant and her husband noticed that in the west 1 in 10 women get breast cancer, in Ireland 1 in 14 get breast cancer while in China 1 in 10,000 women get breast cancer. Why? They discovered women in China avoid milk products like the plague. You won’t see them eat yogurt, cheese, ice cream, milk shakes, pudding or drink milk of any kind. After six rounds of chemotherapy, Professor Plant removed the milk from her diet. She scrutinized every label for hidden milk and her tumors disappeared completely. You can read more about her story at http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/Lnotmilk6.htm.
Scientists have known for some time the link between milk and breast cancer, prostate cancer – just plain cancer. Epidemiological and cultural studies have proven the correlation between the consumption of dairy products (especially whole milk and cheese products) and the number of cancer cases. In 1977, scientists compared the incidence of breast cancer in Japan and found “a significant increase in both the consumption of dairy products and the occurrence of breast cancer in urban areas.” More info http://freefromharm.org/health-nutrition/20-experts-on-the-dairy-%E2%80%94-breast-cancer-connection/.
THE UNIVERSAL ALLERGEN
Cow’s milk has been identified as the most common, universal allergen. The number two most common allergen is wheat. Bottom line is if you want to eliminate your food allergies and say goodbye to infections such as: URI, sinusitis, pneumonia, ear infections, digestive diseases, asthma and cancer; then switch to a non-animal milk source (almond or rice milk). By-the-way, cheese is a concentration of milk by ten times.
NO MILK & OSTEOPOROSIS?
There is a misconception that if you don’t have cow’s milk you will get osteoporosis. Even the WHO knows that the scientific studies show that when you consume milk as a calcium source your body will absorb about 18% and there is no guarantee that it will end up in the bones. Bone health is also tied to minerals and hormones. You have to ask yourself, how does the cow develop strong bones and lots of muscle when it doesn’t consume milk past weaning? The answer is cows eat greens.
We have 9 million cows in the US, which are not classified as healthy and this is why; nearly half have bovine leukemia virus, Crohn’s disease bacterium (believed to cause IBS in humans), artificial rGBH growth hormones or promotion of human prion disease. Check out Dr. Robert Cohen’s book Milk, the Deadly Poison. It seems the hormones they inject into the cows affect how humans metabolize the milk product. One glass of milk can flood the blood system with excess estrogen increasing the risk of breast cancer (Source: Susan Wadia-Ellis, Founding Director of www.knowbreastcancer.net).
RAW MILK ANY BETTER?
Before the industrial revolution, people consumed raw milk. Farming methods changed and milk went from a farming method to a factory method. People moved away from farms, the agricultural lifestyle and no longer owned livestock; which they could milk every day. It depends on who you ask whether raw milk is healthy or bad for you. Raw milk contains proteins, good bacteria, enzymes and hormones made of phosphoprotein. The pasteurization purposely removes phosphoprotenin. Why? The phosphoprotein is sold as fillers for other foods such as; ice cream and for the manufacturing of products such as; fabrics, adhesives and plastics. So, why would the dairy industry include it in your milk when it can be sold for more money to other industries? The pasteurized milk product also has reduced amounts of vitamins like B6 and especially vitamin C.
“Pasteurization destroys enzymes, diminishes vitamin content, denatures fragile milk proteins, destroys vitamin B12, kills beneficial bacteria, promotes pathogens and is associated with allergies, increased tooth decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, osteoporosis, arthritis, heart disease and cancer.”
Sally Fallon, Founder of Weston Price Foundation
In the 1800’s, scientists discovered a trace mineral called boron. Studies proved that boron was essential for plants to be healthy. Nearly 100-years later it was discovered that boron plays a vital role in the metabolic mechanism for healthy human bones. What happens if you don’t have adequate amounts of boron? You will experience an exodus of both calcium and magnesium through the urine. As you lose boron a rapid stage of demineralization takes place, which causes severe osteoporosis. Women who are pre-menopausal are at a higher risk of osteoporosis if they begin to lose boron. Scientists and physicians have known for years that animal milk does not provide the required minerals of boron and magnesium for the calcium in milk to be properly metabolized and absorbed. The cardiovascular system needs minerals too. Consuming cow’s milk leads to the development of heart disease.
WAY TO ALKALINE
I’m sure you’ve heard from health experts to not allow your pH to get off and our system to become too acidic or you can invite serious health risks such as cancer. The facts are that disease can exist in either an acid or alkaline environment. You just don’t want to swing too far in either direction giving disease a real foothold. By-the-way, citrus foods can act as alkaline food sources in the body to establish a balanced pH.
BALANCE pH & GET REAL CALCIUM
So, how do you balance the pH and get healthy calcium? You can get your natural calcium with the required uptake minerals of magnesium and boron in foods such as; seeds, nuts, broccoli, cabbage, carrots and cauliflower.
