Milk Doesn’t Do Anything Good for the Body
The dairy industry has spent billions of dollars to convince consumers that daily recommendation of calcium, potassium, and protein can be provided by the dairy products, not form the fruits and vegetables.
The milk is used as a tasty addition to coffee, delectable treats, and tea. However, when it is pasteurized it is highly toxic to the human body. According to Dr. Willet and many other physicians who have conducted many studies and reviewed the research on the topic, the milk has more of disadvantages to the human body than an aid.
From the experience, the milk has never been shown to reduce fracture risk. Actually, the Nurses’ Health Study showed that excessive consumption of dairy may even increase the risk of fractures by 50%. The findings show that the countries with lowest rates of dairy and calcium consumption (Africa and Asia), have the lowest rates of osteoporosis.
There is an evidence that almost the 3/4 of the world’s population is unable to digest milk and other dairy products. According to this fact it is not an ideal substance for consumption. As this fact is not present to the average consumer doesn’t know this they still believe in the benefits of the milk. Many celebrities are endorsed to advertisements by the dairy industry, without telling them a truth about the dairy’s benefits, as well as its side effects, so they believe that the milk is an ideal food for the optimum health.
Due to so much misinformation about the milk benefits and its side effects, Vox recently created a video in order to illustrate the facade of the dairy industry.
The majority of the people are taught that one must drink milk to grow up “big and strong.” As the scientists don’t see the things how the milk industry wants to present, now you’ll have the possibility to get educated on the facts.
Because the milk is forming mucus in the human body, it can contribute to allergies, ear infections, anemia, Type 1 diabetes, and even constipation.
Additionally, the food rich in milk products may contribute to various types of cancers because the consumption of those products increases the body’s level of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1).
Luckily there are plenty of tasty, creamy dairy alternatives that are easy-to-make and they’re affordable.
You can try ‘Milks’ from the rice, cashew, almonds, hemp, and coconut. All those products can be found in most of the grocery stores, and some companies even sell dairy-free ice cream (e.g. Ben & Jerry’s).
Actually, within the past few years the non-dairy milk market has surged. For example, the almond milk sales have increased by 250 percent from 2000-2015, and the profit from this industry is almost $895 million.
So, probably you found here that it is a time to ditch dairy, replacing it with fruits and vegetables!
