- Processed milk is filled with allergens, carcinogens, hormones and antibiotics.
- The “modern” cows today have abnormally large pituitary glands so that they produce far more milk than the “old fashioned” cows. These cows have health issues and are “fed” antibiotics.
- BGH (Bovine Growth Hormone) is used to increase the milk production and directly absorbed into the human bloodstream. This is linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, etc.
- The cows are fed with high-protein, soy-based food as a substitute for fresh green grass.
- In pasteurization process all valuable enzymes are destroyed. Without them, milk is very difficult to digest and causing over-stress of the pancreas.
- Homogenized milk contains small “granules” that are hurting our arteries and forming lesions. These lesions allow cholesterol, calcium and iron to easily build deposits on arterial walls so arteries become hardened and clogged. This is of course associated with heart disease and high blood pressure.
- Reduced-fat milk is especially not good for us as it is depleted from important ingredients and high in milk sugar.
- Even if the label on the milk says “organic”, you need make sure it is NOT homogenized. You need to look for a milk that is organic, kept in the fridge (typically labeled as “fresh milk”) and has a short shelf time.
Key Things to Remember
- Raw whole, unpasteurized, non-homogenized milk is the best option. It is very difficult to find it but sometimes you can buy it directly from small farms.
- Second best would be the whole, lightly pasteurized, non-homogenized milk from cows raised on organic feed which is now available in many health food shops.
- Alternative sources of calcium are: cultured buttermilk that is often more easily digested than regular milk. Butter obtained from raw milk is great especially for children. Goat milk is also a great alternative and easily digested.
- Dark green vegetables, white beans, sardines, dried figs etc. are also good sources.
