Have you got sick kids? Stop giving them dairy and you´ll see the change!  If your kids suffer with mucus, irritated throat, coughing, colics, gas, and their little noses don´t stop running, try dropping dairy. According to the American Academy of Asthma, Allergies and Immunology, cow´s milk is the number one cause of allergies in kids.

Got zits? Try leaving that white liquid! Many doctors already suspect that fats, sugars, animal protein, and hormones irritate the skin, causing bouts of acne.

 Got osteoporosis?                 

"The mith that osteoporosis is caused by calcium deficiencies, was created to sell dairy products and calcium supplements. There is no truth in that. American women are among the biggest consumers of calcium in the world, and they still have one of the highest levels of osteoporosis in the world. And consuming even more dairy and taking calcium suplements is not going to change that fact".

Dr. John McDougall, The McDougall Program for Women (2000)

 

Cows live in a pitiful condition

 

"The association between the consumption of animal protein and the number of fractures seems to be as strong as the association between smoking and lung cancer"

Dr. T. Colin Campbell

"Milk, it seems clear now,  is not the solution to the problem of a poor bone density. On the contrary, it is part of the problem"

Dr. Charles Attwood

 

Like milk-making machines, they are exploited to produce more and more, they can´t even see daylight 

 

"The dairy folks, ever since the 1920s, have been enormously successful in cultivating an environment within virtually all segments of our society—from research and education to public relations and politics—to have us believing that cow's milk and its products are manna from heaven. ... Make no mistake about it; the dairy industry has been virtually in total control of any and all public health information that ever rises to the level of public scrutiny."
Dr. T. Colin Campbell

."Nowadays. the bombarding in the media to make you drink more milk is just for profit"

Joan Sabaté, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the University of Loma Linda (California)

 

 

DAIRY PRODUCTS                                                                    

It turns out that many people still don´t know how unhealthy dairy products can be. The only reason why they are still being recommended as the panacea to be healthy and strong,  to get our share of calcium and vitamins, etc, is of course, the multibillion business that could go bust if people stopped believing in them.

What would they do now with all those poor cows, living one on top of the other, exploited, and sucked dry? What would they do now without those billions the dairy industry brings them? That lovely, bucholic picture of healthy cows happily chomping on grass, being milked every now and then in the middle of a green field by a smiling farmer, is very far from the truth. I guess there are not many places like that left. There´s too much money to be made to keep only a few cows in a mountain farm. The dairy industry these days has a darker side: hundreds of animals, all stacked up, taking as little space as possible, eating the cheapest stuff, getting loaded with antibiotics and foods that are not natural to them. What counts is maximised profit.

The truth is that, as in every business where the raw material is an animal, these are exploited, fed with toxic substances, and made to live in horrific conditions, not capable of even moving around, and sometimes not even seeing daylight. And after this stressful, sad, and traumatising experience, they are pushed and kicked to the slaughterhouse, where they live their last moments of extreme anxiety and terror. After that, they will be part of someone´s dinner or God knows what fast food blob.

Consuming dairy is not only wrong because of the negative effects they have on our health, but also because it is ethically and morally unacceptable to do that to those poor animals that had the misfortune of falling into our hands.

The fact is that, slowly, people are finding out, and some young and daring doctors are already recommending their patients to drop dairy and start taking vegetable milks. And it´s not valid to say that "it´s only some people, that have an intolerance to milk", that´s not it. For whoever doesn´t know yet, and in plain words, humans don´t have the enzime that digests lactose, therefore, the process of digesting it becomes a huge suffering for our system! Amongst other consequences, drinking milk not only DOESN´T give us calcium, but it TAKES IT AWAY from our bones, it demineralises us! The proof is that there´s more osteoporosis in countries with highest milk consumption. In oriental countries, where consumption of dairy is almost inexistent, incidence of osteoporosis is basically nil.

."A diet high in meat protein and dairy means a high risk of osteoporosis, as it turns the blood extremely acid. Then, calcium must be extracted from the bones to restore the apropriate balance. Calcium is used from every cell in our bodies to maintain integrity in the blood. Therefore, our bodies will sacrifice bone calcium to maintain homeostasis in the blood".

Dr. George J. Georgiou (Ph.D.)

In children, consumption of dairy is the most common cause of ear infections, mucosity, coughs, asthma, etc, etc. I have seen so many cases of kids and adults whose conditions have stopped completely when they stopped taking dairy products!

The increase of the incidence of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and asthma occurred in western countries in the last century is directly related to the increase of milk consumption. There are countless studies that prove these facts. We´re fed up of being controlled from every corner, and that our goverments and companies do always everything for profit. If they care so much about our health... why don´t they stop selling tobacco, for example? Because it´s very difficult for them to renounce all those juicy billions! Or maybe because the party that took that decision would be afraid to lose votes?

I sincerely hope that the Health Departments of every country consider the situation, and think a bit more about the health of their citizens instead of their own profit. In my opinion, what they should do is start generating a plan to help the dairy industry recycle themselves and become a completely different business that really helps people´s health. Seeing that every day there´s more and more demand for organic and biological food, they could invest all that money in the creation of a real, quality, health food organisation.

I´m convinced there are many ways to do it, and they can if they want. Soon the population won´t believe their lies and their beautifully made marketing campaigns, and then they´ll be forced to change. Now is the time.

          What’s In Your Milk? by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D.

 

An Exposé of Industry and Government Cover-Up on the DANGERS of the Genetically Engineered (rBGH) Milk You’re Drinking

 
From the Book:

Monsanto, supported by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), insists that rBGH milk is indistinguishable from natural milk, and that it is safe for consumers. This is blatantly false.

  • rBGH makes cows sick. Monsanto has been forced to admit to about 20 toxic effects, including mastitis, on its POSILAC label.
  • rBGH milk is contaminated by pus, due to the mastitis commonly induced by rBGH, and antibiotics used to treat the mastitis.
  • rBGH milk is supercharged with high levels of a natural growth factor (IGF-1), which is readily absorbed through the gut.
  • Excess levels of IGF-1 have been incriminated as a cause of breast, colon, and prostate cancers.
  • IGF-1 blocks natural defense mechanisms against early submicroscopic cancers.
  • rBGH factory farms pose a major threat to the viability of small dairy farms.
  • rBGH enriches Monsanto, while posing dangers, without any benefits, to consumers.
