As a child in public school, you were quick to learn the importance of consuming dairy products. Let’s face it, Michael Jordan was on the wall with a milk mustache, and your supposed ‘nutrition’ class taught that milk helps one grow big and form strong bones. So little did you think to doubt the advice of adults, and got into the habit of drinking 1-3 glasses per day. Now as an adult, you likely are experiencing symptoms of a body riddled with calcium deposits, a compromised gastro-intestinal tract, stagnant lymphatic system, and an an over-abundance of acidosis if dairy is still a regular addition to your diet. Symptoms from acne to arthritis, to IBS to eczema are all linked with dairy consumption, and now, experts say, also with osteoporosis.
Dairy milk is the biggest contributor to the brittle bone disease because more than any other food, it depletes the finite reserve of bone-making cells in the body. Milk does seem to make bones stronger in the short-term, but long-term it erodes bone-making cells, eventually causing havoc later on. This explains the paradox of why black people (who are known to be less tolerant to lactose in milk) drink less milk than white people and also experience less osteoporosis in effect.
A12-year Harvard study of more than 78,000 women concluded that women who drank milk three times a day experienced more bone breaks and fractures. And a 1994 study in Sydney, Australia showed that higher dairy consumption was associated with increased fracture risk: those with the highest dairy consumption had double the risk of hip fracture compared to those with the lowest consumption.
Author Russel Eaton has this to say about dairy consumption: “Dairy milk does increase bone density, but this comes at a terrible price. The latest research is showing that far from protecting bones, milk actually increases the risk of osteoporosis by eroding bone-making cells. Also, people with osteoporosis have a much higher incidence of heart disease and cancer, and the evidence is pointing at milk as the common factor. . ‘
Once it was thought that prostate cancer is caused by harmful fats in the diet, but now experts believe that milk is one of the main contributors to this ailment. Calcium and phosphorous in milk serve to feed nanobacteria, causing calcification and cancer. Harmful calcification, caused by nanobacteria in the body, is at the root of many ailments, such as arthritis, kidney stones, heart disease, and stroke. These microscopic organisms get fed calcium and phosphorus form the bloodstream, and then secrete calcium phosphate to cause calcification. In the book The Milk Imperative, the author shows how dairy milk feeds nanobacteria, thus causing many serious diseases.
Dr. Amy Lanou (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, USA), commented on the book, saying, “There is a compelling argument that today’s pasteurized milk, in all its guises, has virtually no redeeming features at all, and serves only to cause disease and poor health. By simply switching from dairy to non-dairy milk, we will make a dramatic and long-lasting improvement to our health.”
Dairy also stagnates the lymphatic system, which is like the sewer system of the body. If the kidneys are not filtering the lymph, toxicity can remain in the body and contribute to other ailments as well.
Clearly, certain dietary guidelines are flawed and outdated. If you wish to live a long and healthy live, cut out the pasteurized cow’s milk and try some delicious plant-based options. Hemp, almond, coconut, rice, and oat are just some yummy alternatives your whole family may like. If you choose to continue consuming animal milk, be sure to at least buy only raw and unpasteurized. High heating changes the molecular structure so that it causes more problems in the body.
