The Science behind low-fat, non-fat, and fat-free milk, doesnt mean health. It means you can be ingesting chemicals and added sugars to cover up the bad taste. Researchers suggest only a few individual side-effects from altered milk fat were found. (discomfort in the colon, and diarrhea) But, theres more to this scientific experiment. Science has a conflict of interest in some of these studies. Plus, they claim that the interest is for our benefit!

Casting doubt

According to a study published in the medical journal BMJ, a diet rich in milk could have detrimental health consequences.

The study said: “We observed a dose-dependent higher rate of both mortality and fracture in women and a higher rate of mortality in men with milk intake”.

It should be clear to most, pasteurized milk does not build strong bones. Dairy cows, used for milk production, are injected with hormones and antibiotics, that can harm our gut microbiome.

Current guidelines found to be flawed!

In 2006, when consumers were taught… ‘fat is bad.It was a lie. The truth, bad fat is bad. But, as health-conscious people, we became fat-phobic and bought into low-fat and non-fat dairy products. The truth is, studies were designed for health-conscious people, to become confused about fat

Conflicts of interest

In 2001, a major study concluded that nondisclosure of personal financial interests is a significant problem in the scientific and medical literature.

The food industrys open support of nutrition scientists goes as far back as 1918, when the National Dairy Council began enlisting the support of nutrition researchers such as E. V. McCollum of Johns Hopkins University and H. C. Sherman of Columbia University in order to change dietary guidelines for food additives.

A 2003 JAMA Report– a conflict of interest found arising from industry ties to influence biomedical research. Managing financial conflicts varied substantially across academic institutions and peer-reviewed journals.

In 2007 Financial Interest found in industrial sponsors. Investigators might formulate hypotheses, design studies, or analyze data in ways that are consistent with the financial interests of their industrial sponsors.

Secret Industry relationships found in Science, where additional conflicts of interest arise.

Cancer – What increases our risk?

Over the last 55 years, there has been a significant increase in rates of obesity, poor mental health, and cancer. Conditions such as these cause U.S. economies billions each year in lost production in the work environment.

Facts are, studies found rBGH milk causal in hormonal imbalances, and cancer, which in my mind, is a serious cause for concern. Unbeknownst to most, breast cancer and prostate cancer have all been linked epidemiologically to dairy intake.

A 2004 Study found dairy to alter androgen metabolism and oxidative stress, in prostate cancer.

An Italian 2006 Study showed cancers found by consuming milk.

In 2007 a study suggesting a greater dietary intake of dairy products, particularly low-fat types, maybe associated with increased risks for prostate cancer.

A 2018 China Study, found a positive association between dairy consumption and gastric cancer risk.

Body Burden… A Cause For Concern

*Dairy products contribute about 1/4 to 1/2 to the dietary intake of total dioxins. (1) Dioxins are hormone disruptors found harmful to the immune system. Most importantly, theyre stable chemicals and can stay in the body for over ten years disrupting metabolism, microbiome, and weight.

*Organochlorine pesticides are now abundantly found in human breast milk. These pesticides are used in dairy farms. They alter the food chain, adversely affect ecosystem balance, and increase the risk for disease. Learn alternatives to pesticide use in your neighborhood. (2)

*Glyphosate, an herbicide found in dairy, can be causal in the vitamin D deficiency epidemic.

*Elements of Heavy metals find their way into milk through several routes.

Olympic Athletes Used to Promote Milk & Sugar!

The add reads: “Making White Milk Attractive …Just Drink Chocolate Milk”

U.S. Olympic athletes have always relied on milk to help fuel their journeys to the Olympic Games,said Julia Kadison, at MilkPEP.

Milk Life’s Sponsorship of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams extends beyond the 2018 PyeongChang Games, to Tokyo 2020.

Considering sugar can be linked to increased body fat and blood sugar imbalances, drinking chocolate milk can add to the obesity  epidemic.

If We Only Knew What Cows Eat-would we eat dairy?

Facts – In the US, Big Agricultural Cattle Industry supplements our cattles diet with beer, marshmallows, gummy bears, cookies, candy in wrappers, candy sprinkles, hot chocolate mix, breakfast cereal, stale bakery goods in wrappers, corn, soy, restaurant waste/rancid ingredients, expired dairy and eggs, synthetic vitamins, fish meal, chicken meal, chicken poop, and more.

Chicken waste can contain many disease-causing bacteria, pesticides, dead rodents, viruses, antibiotics, and heavy metals such as mercury.

Why do they feed cattle candy and waste? Meat producers claim they can attain a higher ratio of fat than feeding cows corn. Moreover, as ridiculous as it sounds, they also claim they are reducing our carbon footprint by feeding cattle toxic waste products!

Still crave that cream in your coffee or that cheese on your caesar salad? Reduce your risk for toxic exposures and learn the facts about metabolic and digestive wellness.
