At this point in the series, I would like to share some questions, raised from the findings that cow’s milk protein (casein) is a chemical carcinogen.
Because of some of the evidence suggesting milk is unhealthy, I suggest you skip the cow’s milk.
Casein is a chemical carcinogen.
Some chemicals in our environment qualify as carcinogens.
Milk sales first began to slow in the US in 1970, and the industry has been scrambling to stop the free fall ever since. Although the connection between milk, calcium, and bone health has been the cornerstone of dairy advertising, the industry has also engaged in continual efforts to expand the image of what milk can do for Americans. But no matter what purported benefits they use to entice consumers, the dairy industry has been plagued by an absence of credible research to support their assertions.
A large observational cohort study in Sweden found that women consuming more than 3 glasses of milk a day had almost twice the mortality over 20 years compared to those women consuming less than one glass a day.
A reader asked if his kids would be even more, or “dangerously” thin if they didn’t eat lots of added oils and cheeses.
I’m trying to cut down dairy, but do I really have to give up ice cream?
Thanks to countless millions of dollars in advertising, almost everybody thinks they need milk. Over the past several decades, cow’s milk and its byproducts have come to be seen as an essential part of the diet of most Americans.
There are few if any health topics that are more contentious and personally sensitive than the question of the health benefits and risks of cow’s milk and its products.
