What the government doesn't want you to know about milk.
Evidence is beginning to mount that milk is not the source of health it has always been purported to be. Scientists across the globe are beginning to question wisdom of the widespread use of any dairy product in its present form. Apart from the fact that more than three quarters of the world population is lactose intolerant, we now know that there are a multitude of problems associated with the milk protein.
A second problem that has surfaced fairly recently in scientific research is the presence of a natural growth hormone that is eerily identical to the human growth hormone. It is this IGF1 (Insulin Growth Factor) that is becoming more and more suspect. This hormone makes the calf grow incredibly fast (the cow is a prey animal in the wild) .
In humans it makes cancers grow and spread like wildfire. For that reason alone we would suggest to all women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer : your rate of survival will dramatically increase if you refrain from using any dairy products, or at least drastically reduce. Calcium and Vit D deficiences are just another part of the hype and completely unfunded. The opposite might very well be true. (see next column)
We quit drinking milk after I was diagnosed with clogged arteries, even though I have always been very active , lived a healthy life and enjoyed a healthy nutritious diet, but we have always loved cheese and would never end a day without a glass of red wine and a generous helping of different cheeses. We know it contains fat and cholesterol but what we did not know is that 80% of the milk protein consists of Casein (which is basically a glue which leads to a lot of mucus build up and other health problems like asthma and congestion, bloated feeling), milk also contains.. powerful growth hormones, viruses, a host of deadly chemical and biological bacterial agents, bovine proteins that cause allergies, insecticides, antibiotics, all this can trigger the growth of cancer and contributes to today's problem of obese children (ever notice why young girls breasts develop faster?). Cow's milk is the number one allergic food in this country. It has been well documented as a cause in diarrhea, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency anemia, skin rashes, atherosclerosis, and acne. It is the primary cause of recurrent ear infections in children. It has also been linked to insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, infertility, and leukemia. Milk and refined sugar make two of the largest contributions to food induced ill health in our country.
Better make that: All refined carbohydrates, more specific the ones from wheat. Gluten allergy is far more common than is realised. Only the severe cases apparently get noted. And it is not just the allegies, but even more insididous is gluten intolerance, biomarkers for which are often not recognized by most general practitioners.
A lot of secundary health issues could be gluten related..

Milk revealed as main cause of osteoporosis
Pasteurized dairy milk is revealed as the main dietary cause of osteoporosis, according to a new book. It has been thought for many years that calcium in milk makes bones stronger, but new research is showing something new: osteoporosis is caused by a lack of bone making cells rather than a lack of calcium.
Dairy milk is singled out as the culprit because more than any other food it depletes the finite reserve of bone-making cells in the body. So although milk makes bones stronger in the short term, in the long term it erodes bone-making cells, increasing the risk of osteoporosis. This explains a paradox: black people are known to be less tolerant to lactose in milk, and consequently they drink less milk, yet they get much less osteoporosis than white people. This new research resolves the paradox because by consuming less milk you are less likely to get osteoporosis. The real issue is of course pasteurization, whereby the enzymes needed for the breakdown of the milk proteins are killed.
Growing evidence is showing that calcium in milk does not protect against osteoporosis. For example in a 12-year Harvard study of 78,000 women, those who drank milk three times a day actually broke more bones than women who rarely drank milk. Similarly, a 1994 study in Sydney, Australia, showed that higher dairy product consumption was associated with increased fracture risk: those with the highest dairy consumption had double the risk of hip fracture compared to those with the lowest consumption.
Author Russell Eaton says: Dairy milk does increase bone density, but this comes at a terrible price. The latest research is showing that far from protecting bones, milk actually increases the risk of osteoporosis by eroding bone-making cells. Also, people with osteoporosis have a much higher incidence of heart disease and cancer, and the evidence is pointing at milk as the common factor.
It had been thought that prostate cancer was caused by harmful fats in the diet, but this may not be so. Calcium and phosphorus in milk serve to feed nanobacteria, causing calcification and cancer.
It seems that harmful calcification, caused by nanobacteria in the body, is at the root of many diseases such as arthritis, kidney stones, heart disease and stroke. These microscopic organisms get fed calcium and phosphorus from the bloodstream and then secrete calcium phosphate to cause calcification. In the book "The Milk Imperative" the author shows how dairy milk feeds nanobacteria, thus causing many serious diseases.
There is one glaring exception : Spring pastured cows produce a deep golden healthy butter loaded with Vitamin K2, as well as A and D.
Commenting on the book Dr. Amy Lanou (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, USA) said: ‘There is a compelling argument that today’s pasteurized milk, in all its guises, has virtually no redeeming features at all, and serves only to cause disease and poor health. By simply switching from dairy to non-dairy milk we will make a dramatic and long-lasting improvement to our health.'

Milk ! Not so Good for You ?? !!
the issue is pasteurisation
which kills the enzymes and turns milk into a health threat
Maybe Not building blocks of Life?.....
I was not created to produce 100 lbs of milk per day, and live only for four years
NB. There is something to be said in favour of so called 'raw milk', unpasteurized (which kills the bad guys, but also the good guys.). The lack of enzymes in pasteurized milk is detrimental, but since some 70% of North American herds are infected with leukemia, there really is no choice.
Further , the homogenization of milk makes the fat cells small enough to enter into the bloodstream
After looking at 34 published studies in 16 countries, researchers at Yale University found that the countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis—including the United States, Sweden, and Finland—were those in which people consumed the most meat, milk, and other animal foods. This study also showed that African-Americans, who consume, on average, more than 1,000 mg of calcium per day, are nine times more likely to experience hip fractures than are South African blacks, whose daily calcium intake is only about 196 mg.
After examining all the available nutritional studies and evidence, Dr. John McDougall concludes: "The primary cause of osteoporosis is the high-protein diet most Americans consume today. As one leading researcher in this area said, 'eating a high-protein diet is like pouring acid rain on your bones.'" Remarkably enough, both clinical and population studies show that milk-drinkers tend to have more bone breaks than people who consume milk infrequently or not at all. For the dairy industry to lull unsuspecting women and children into complacency by telling them to be sure to drink more milk so that their bones will be strong may make good business sense, but it does the consumer a grave disservice.
So what can I do to maintain strong bones?
Although the evidence is strong that dairy-product consumption doesn't prevent osteoporosis, simply eliminating dairy products does not ensure strong bones.
It pays to put some thought into keeping your bones healthy. Studies have shown that the following factors are helpful in building and maintaining strong bones:
• Getting plenty of exercise. Studies have concluded that physical exercise is the key to building strong bones (it's more important than any other factor). For example, a study published in the British Medical Journal that followed 1,400 men and women over a 15-year period found that exercise may be the best protection against hip fractures and that "reduced intake of dietary calcium does not seem to be a risk factor." And Penn State University researchers found that bone density is significantly affected by how much exercise girls get during their teen years, when 40 to 50 percent of their skeletal mass is formed.
• Getting enough vitamin D. If you don't spend any time in the sun (about 15 minutes on the face and arms each day is enough), be sure to take a supplement or eat fortified foods.
