In this article you will discover that milk is really the healthiest food there is, but only if you are a cow!
Oh, nooo. Now you won't deny me my breakfast nozzle right? ... by no, save at least that!
This document will disturb some palates fond of milk and its derivatives. If you want to continue undisturbed to drink your lattuccio every morning with great satisfaction, then do not continue reading of this article.
If you prefer to live according to the rule that the truth will set you free, then go ahead! (and then tell me what you think).
Some of the charges attributed to milk, deriving from numerous studies (independent of the milk industry), lead him back to terrible health effects human like:
- Intestinal hemorrhage
- Childhood diabetes
- Heart disease
- Allergic reactions
Also, some common reactions to cow's milk are1:
- Abdominal pains
- Iron deficiency anemia
- Delay in growth
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Itchy eyes
Cow's milk is one of the most common allergens in the world
It is estimated that the 75% approximately of the world population has a intolerance to this food.
So, the normal condition towards the milk is that of intolerance, while the exceptional condition is of digestibility. In other words, it is normal to be intolerant to milk, if you are not, you are simply a mutant.
I really mean it…
After the 2 years we normally tend to lose the enzyme lactase, which digests the lactose (the sugar present in milk), and rarely there are variations of some elements inside the gene (MCM6) that expresses the enzyme lactase. In these rare cases, the gene continues to synthesize the enzyme that digests lactose even in adulthood2.
In 75% of cases the indigestible lactose ends up in the small intestine, then in thelarge intestine (the last portion of the intestine), where the enzymes of the bacterial flora intestinal (the bacteria that live in our intestines).
These bacteria digest lactose for you that you can't, but they do it by causing you some side effects: gas formation, abdominal cramps, diarrhea.
There are different disturbing aspects in this food. By itself, cow's milk has its place perfectly sensible in nature and here it plays its role in an unexceptionable way. But, taken away from his natural content, e improperly used produces unacceptable aberrations (if you want to stay healthy for as long as possible).
For this reason milk is really the healthiest food, but only if you are a cow
On the one hand there is the cow that produces a milk specially prepared for the calf weight growth, which must quickly become a large mammal, which at the age of only 8-10 months has a weight of 300-350Kg.
On the other hand there is the man who now systematically uses this milk to feed a baby of man, and worse yet, a adult man perfectly developed.
Wait a minute, but it never occurred to you that man is the only animal to drink milk after breastfeeding, moreover taking it from a animal of another species?
La natural relationship and logic should be:
Cow–> cow. Goat–> goat. Pig–> pig. Species X–> species X.
What happens when you change the equation to cow -> man?
It happens one half a disaster, and you prove it by continuing in the article.
Moreover, there is our consumerist society that spends astonishing figures to finance the mental conditioning of the masses in order to increase or at least keep unchanged the consumption of dairy products (milk, cheese, butter, yogurt).
This is how the milk production cycle works. The cow to produce milk must be in a state of pregnancy (as nature requires), at birth the calves are separated from the mother and come fed with non-salable milk for human use.
This milk cannot be sold because it contains a high concentration of infectious agents (example: pathogens of the mastite), which can pass from the cow to its milk and from there to anyone who feeds on it.
In fact, even if the milk for human consumption must be below a certain acceptance threshold for the infectious risk3-4 , this is always quite high and does not guarantee that the milk is free from active pathogens (in particular regarding unpasteurized milk).
A method used to determine whether milk is suitable for human use consists of count of immune cells (mostly leukocytes) inside the milk in response to the presence of a pathogen (example: lo staph which causes mastitis in cows).
Depending on the country considered, these maximum values range from 400.000-750.000 cells on milliliter (ml) of milk5.
If you compare these values to the average dose of milk for human consumption it means that with a normal glass of milk from 250ml you can also ingest 187.500.000 (187 million!) Of White blood cells, also known as "pus cells"(Brrrrr ... ...).
Well, how disgusting! thank you very much, for sure from now on I will never see a glass of milk the same way as before. I don't know whether to thank you or not ... oh well, if it's for a good purpose, pass ...
If milk were the panacea for many ills, then you could accept the risk associated with the presence of infectious agents in it, but on the contrary milk (and dairy products), far from being that healthy nutritious food that advertising and institutions make you believe.
On the contrary, it is cause of many common pathologies (avoidable with simple elimination of this improper food for humans).
For what other extraordinary benefit is milk known?
Ah yes, for the contribution of calcium, which makes the bones and teeth stronger than ever! Just like superman says here.
(Translation: "Super. This is how milk makes you feel. Calcium helps bones grow strong, so even if you don't come from Krypton you can have steel bones. Did you get the milk?").
... Eeeggià, but is it really so?
To understand how things actually look, look at this graphic relative to the incidence of bone fractures depending on calcium consumption.
Once again an image is worth a thousand words.
Fig. 1 (statistical correlation between calcium consumption and incidence of bone fractures in various countries). I have drawn the red line and it is indicative of the positive correlation between the two variables. That is, as X = calcium consumption grows Y = pelvic fracture.
What does the graph above say in practice? this graph clearly states that:
The higher the calcium intake, the greater the risk of bone fractures in the pelvis
The reasoning that the author of this study makes is that in western countries the calcium supply is mainly due to animal products (meat and dairy products), which are also rich in animal protein.
An excess of animal proteins tents acidify the internal environment of the body (extracellular cells and liquids).
And the body reacts to this acidification with a extraction of calcium from the bones for the purpose of correcting the acid with the help this alkaline mineral (which produces an effect of chemical buffer).
The excess calcium then comes eliminated via the kidneys and is no longer recovered. He leaves in the toilet and leaves ours weakened bones.
Here is another myth associated with soccer that collapses miserably
And to think that not a few doctors could still suggest you in a placid and alluring way to take calcium from dairy products. As the famous master said Paramahansa Yogananda, a person should know a little of everything, and all of a thing.
In other words, not to be fooled into life it is useful to search for the truth itself and do not put off the responsibility of your life to other people, despite these possessing a degree.
In fact, this piece of paper is not at all a guarantee of genuine interest towards other people (Note: thank goodness even extraordinary doctors exist out there, with excellent knowledge and the will to heal, in addition to the piece of paper, which for charity, is necessary and desirable).
To this fact of the excretion of football another problem related to the renal transit of high concentrations of calcium is added which tends to precipitate and thus form crystals increasingly larger at the level of the urinary tract. This passage of calcium therefore represents a real risk for the formation of kidney stones.
If you have kidney stone problems (or have had them), ask yourself if you are or have been a regular consumer of dairy products, because in this food there is a close link with the formation of stones in the kidneys6 and in the rest of the urinary tract.
If you want to keep your bones and teeth strong, think about taking them Vitamin D instead of calcium or worse milk. Vitamin D has proven to be more useful for bone health than dairy products.
Moreover, recently this exceptional vitamin has unveiled multiple protective functions for the entire body in addition to its positive function for bones.
*** SHOCKING VIDEO ***
(CAUTION: This video contains images of inhuman treatments for cows and their calves. It may not be suitable for children and particularly sensitive people).
In traditional industrial farms (not in line with the requirements of the organic and biodynamic farms) daily routines may exist cruel like the ones you can see - if you feel like this video shot in the USA.
Have you seen the video? did not give you other good reasons to let the cows live outdoors and follow their natural rhythms (of life, reproduction, growth, and death), rather than the cruel and violent ones dictated by the principle of maximum profit at all costs?
At this point we will have concluded this negative analysis on milk and derivatives?
Mmmh, no! indeed, now the matter becomes more serious: dairy products and cancer.
Help. 5 minutes of recovery from psychological trauma no huh?
The poor average American (in Europe and Canada this practice is prohibited) is also subjected to another danger stimulus to health and coming from milk: theIGF-1.
Dairy cows are artificially stimulated to produce more milk with theuse of the hormone IGF-1 (silage-like growth hormone7). This hormone injected into the cow, increases milk production by + 10%.
Mmmmh, great! this pharmacology and biotechnology really does miracles! at this rate where man's insightful intelligence and resourcefulness will lead us! (I don't know if the ironic nuance had happened ...).
But guess where the i end up IGF-1 hormone residues injected into our milk-producing cow? right, in his milk8, which then ends in the man who nourishes it.
And what is this fantastic growth hormone associated with? to growth! and what will grow in a immunologically weakened body like the one that characterizes almost all of us contemporaries?
Eggià, unfortunately also unwanted things grow, like the cancer cells9-10 , the so-called crazy cells (but will they be crazy or perhaps some typically human modalities?).
The hormone IGF-1 it is always always naturally present in milk11 of cow because this is produced by the body of the cow and in part it is also transferred to the XNUMX cups milk.
So, in Italy even if we are exempt from the ingestion of IGF-1 injected into cows, we are still subjected to the normal presence of this growth hormone present in mammalian milk.
The fact is that an adult man does not need to grow and become even bigger and bigger, so this hormonal growth stimulus risks of just growing neoplastic formations (cancer).
If you want to become aware (not fear, but conscience!) you should know that the IGF-1 system in its metabolic role of growth has been associated with development of various malignant cancers12-13 .
In fact, in this scientific study I report to point 12 the development of new drugs that can inhibit the activity of receptors for this hormone is hypothesized, in such a way as to deactivate the IGF-1 system, which is thus demonstrated efficient in proliferating and grow up malignant cells.
And if the IGF-1 system has a healthy role within the complex human metabolic system (devoted to healthy cell growth where it is needed).
Today, starting from the numerous negative environmental stimuli that we already have to suffer daily, it is not worth it unbalance further entering every day another IGF-1 from the outside (feeding on milk and cheese).
The correlation between dairy products and cancer does not stop with IGF-1
Whether the causes are associated with the hormone IGF-1 or other, the fact is that numerous studies now associate the XNUMX cups milk toincreased risk to develop the breast cancer14, ovarian cancer14, prostate cancer15 e colon cancer16-17% (... in the face of the little hood !!!).
Please note:, I'm not saying that milk undoubtedly causes cancer, I'm just indicating that there are scientific studies that they put into Alert regarding this risk (and everything is always in function of dose and frequency of use).
It is up to each of us to use the critical common sense and decide accordingly on our eating habits.
How milk puts babies and children at risk of irreversible cognitive deficits
Not only does milk create problems for adults as I have shown you so far, but it can also cause serious problems for small children. THE Infants they are in fact high risk of iron deficiency and anemia18. Here's how this happens.
Some studies19 have shown that when the XNUMX cups milk it is consumed with a certain frequency (as happens in the first months / years of life), it can cause one iron deficiency in the body of babies and children.
The hypothesis is that this happens for two reasons: the first is that the low iron content of milk and the second is associated with his high protein concentration, which in some cases (well the 40%) can generate intestinal bleeding with consequent loss of blood here.
The problem is that the iron is essential for the correct e healthy development of the nervous system (brain and nerves)20-21-22-23. If this phase of development suffers some disturbance (as in the case of the milk-dependent iron deficiency), then the child can develop a cognitive impairment that you will take with you for lifetime!
That is not all, in fact this hyperproteic (frequent) contribution of the child has been associated with theinduction of obesity in adult life18 and diabetes.
That is, milk - with its high protein content, designed to enhance a 350kg calf in a few months- can "turn on the switch" of theobesity, planning a child to become fat in his life as a teenager or as an adult.
Additional note to the paragraph: about cognitive deficits associated with milk consumption, theelimination of the two major allergens in circulation, ie gluten and lactose of is demonstrated Useful also in the behavior of autistic children25.
Why not also make a brief digression on the greenhouse effect?
Indeed our friends cows they have a special feature, they produce a saaacco of gas! a gas more harmful to the environment than CO2: the methane (CH4).
It is estimated that the methane is 23 times more harmful to the environment compared to the CO2 of cars.
THEanimal farming produces 100 million tons of methane every year.
to produce a lot of milk the cows must eat a lot, and this does nothing but increase the production of methane that is formed in them intestine.
And the man consumes 5 more times animal products compared to what he was doing 50 years ago. It is also estimated that this consumption will double again in the next 50 years.
Even now the air we breathe contains the twice as much as methane compared to the one we breathed 100 years ago.
To worsen the environmental condition in relation to milk there is the fact that to meet the large demand for dairy products in industrialized countries (request created by industries in synergy with governments) is created new useful space for farms where before there was a magnificent one forest.
The magical and irreplaceable Amazon rainforest comes today sacrificed to make room for pascoli for animals and for growing le crops of which the animals themselves feed.
we are deforesting not only for the wood but also for the animal pastures from breeding.
Remember this famous image of the American native who cries seeing the destruction of his land invaded and ruined by the white man?
It is sad to have to continue identifying with him, but we feel so ...
Only those who have tried one feeling of infinity observing a sunset, or of eternity observing themorning dawn, or whoever finds himself every time he crosses the invisible border to tiptoe into the magic of a forest fully understands what a mistake stupid and arrogant be that of ruin the wonderful nature.
They return a second to the immune reactions produced by lactose intolerance, to these are added another sword of Damocles that hangs on the heads of unsuspecting consumers of milk and derivatives: grassi.
As you know for sure, nature offers us good fats and bad fats. More than half of milk calories come from his own fat, most of which are saturated fats.
Saturated fats are associated withobstruction of the arteries and should not be used without measure, in excess of it on a daily basis, especially this should be avoided when it is in association with a state of non-optimal health (characterized by a silent or manifest inflammation and chronic stress).
Regardless of its saturated fat content, milk is associated withincreased ischemic risk (interrupted blood circulation in the heart) and al diabetes, because of beta-Casein (a milk protein). Combine beta-casein with saturated fats and get food not exactly suited to heart health.
Use dairy products if you suffer from heart problems or you have a tendency to obesity and diabetes it is crazy!
Food products and by-products: the revenue rule
The rule of gain on food is the following: the more you can get salable by-products starting from a main product e the more you earn.
From the milk the industry produces by-products that come inserted almost everywhere (in the 50-75% of common supermarket products according to a rough estimate).
Here are some of the alternative items that indicate the presence of milk or derivatives (butter, yogurt, cheese) in what you buy.
Pseudonyms of milk (fractions of it):
- Lactic acid
- Milk's proteins
- Milk albumin
At this point, did I persuade you to "give up" on your morning dog?
See, the fact is that everything we examined together through these informations helps to turn on a switch inside yourself which is ON or OFF.
When switching from OFF to ON (lit) it no longer makes sense to talk about renunciation, you simply move to a different level of thinking / behavior.
Change thanks to one insight (insight) instantaneous, as he says Jiddu Krishnamurti, and the awareness that makes you see and instantly you turns.
Because it happens beyond the abstract aspect of thought and the deceptive mechanisms of the mind.
Milk is no longer a good thing for you, but it is still a good thing for calves. If you really want, every now and then, drink a bit of milk or eat cheese certainly not the worst thing in the world.
At least make sure that comes from farms that respect the life of the animal (outdoor pastures and power supply Biological). But remember that you don't need milk to feel good, indeed this can be a problem.
I repeat to you the same concept anti-fanatic with another example: if they give you a cremino for Christmas or in the restaurant menu see a return to hot chocolate (both containing dairy products) that you like so much, what do you do, don't you eat it the world?
If you want to eat the cremino and the pie as well, without remorse (if you do it without remorse and without thinking it will hurt you, because there is alsonocebo effect, not just the placebo one). Why what makes the difference in life is what you do up daily basis or quite frequently, not what you do once or twice a month, right?
Let's say you would like to eat something chocolate more frequently, but you would like avoid dairy products, today fortunately i vegan sweets they begin to be diffused a little everywhere. This is a possible alternative, though you shouldn't break through sweets albeit vegan (because they contain sugar and sweeteners).
In everything, the fanaticism is not NEVER a good thing, while the 'open-mindedness and the search for truth they are, and they are also the only way we have to bring a stable and profound change in our environment.
Take the information you have acquired here today and make the best use possible by following the common sense, and remember that sometimes you have to do radical choices to improve. I told you everything I discovered about milk, now the decision is yours.
And finally, remember (I repeat) that you don't need milk or its derivatives to feel good (not even children - for them, learn more with the help of an expert in natural weaning).
In fact all the minerals and healthy elements as you need (and in the best shape assimilable) you find them mainly in vegetables, algae and oilseeds.
The vegetables, along with a non-excessive amount of Whole grains (gluten free like buckwheat and quinoa) are yours food resource N ° 1 if you want stay healthy or regain it fully.
CONCLUSION: The alternatives to cow's milk
We close this document with solutions to the problem. Fortunately, today the choice of alternatives to milk they are numerous.
Luckily, I think we've turned the page by now. Ok, I don't want to hear about milk and dairy products anymore. Soymilk all the vitaaaaa.
In herbalist's shop or in the stores of organic food (but also in supermarkets - almost all equipped with shelves dedicated to organic products) you can choose from the following types of vegetable milk:
- Milk of almonds
- Milk of rice
- Milk of Quinoa
- Milk of oats
- Milk of buckwheat
These are not the only alternatives, but they are the easier to find. If you want to take a step further, avoid added sweeteners also in vegetable milk (type XNUMX/XNUMX cup sugar, syrup of agave, and similar).
Recently I found a brand oat milk Black Elk without added sweeteners (in fact it is part of a line of products called "Only Oats“,“ Rice Only ”,“ Soy Only ”, etc.), try it.
Remember that everything you read here is all the more valid - in a preventive sense - the more you follow one really healthy lifestyle.
Nobody expects a miracle from the elimination of cow's milk, but we can expect great improvements in the prevention and in the state of health when there is one synergy between nutrition, lifestyle, physical and mental exercise.
In addition of course to all the corrective aids that i natural remedies they can offer when they are needed (and under the guidance of a doctor experienced in natural therapies).
Which, along with the right lifestyle, dramatically increase the chances of living a life without major health problems, indeed with more energy, vitality and good humor of the majority of people who do not implement these principles.
Be one wise person and let yourself be guided by common sense and the desire to improve.
I wish you a vibrant health and well-being!
