Feast On This!

Lately, it seems that word is finally getting around about the dangerous effects of milk consumption. How ridiculous was it that the outcome of the (fiasco) fiscal cliff (or at least part of it) hinged on averting a price hike in milk prices?! Parents were freaking out about the cost of milk rising when in actuality, that is the one thing parents should not be giving their children. It is absolutely not a coindence that the U.S. consumes the most dairy, yet we have the highest rates of osteoporosis. Numerous studies have confirmed that when we ingest cow’s milk, our bodies have a reaction to the acid in the milk and in an effort to neutralize it, our body releases the calcium from our bones. Dr. Neal Barnard, head of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine wrote about the dangers of milk consumption over at The Kind Life; I highly recommend you check it out.

    The only time someone should consume milk is a baby being brfeast-fed by mom. That is how many immunities are passed from mother to child. After that, there’s no point. I’m so glad that milk was an easy thing for me to give up; I really only liked it in cereal and I’ve since grown to love soy milk even more.

      Exactly! Milk is so unnecessary for us and not only do our bodies suffer from it, the dairy cows who are kept constantly pregnant and never able to see their calves, are needlessly suffering. It’s so sad. I wish people would stop defending milk and milk products just because it’s something they like the taste of.
