Milk advertising is deceiving the general public

Print Friendly

(NaturalHealth365) Although there are massive campaigns to have you believe that “Milk Does the Body Good”, homogenized and pasteurized dairy products are very toxic. And, in plain terms, cow’s milk is designed for baby cows, not humans. Thus, to support the growth of an animal that will eventually weigh about 1500 pounds, cow’s milk has over 3 times the amount of protein (which is very difficult to digest) and 3 times the amount of calcium.

The (commercial) milk industry does NOT want you to read this

In humans, “there is a natural weaning process that occurs between 5 – 7 years of age, when the lactase enzyme that breaks down the lactose, or milk sugar, is no longer secreted.” It is basically a natural weaning process that all mammals experience, since most mammals lose the ability to digest their mother’s milk once they can venture on their own and find their own source of food. In fact, according to a study done in the 70’s, “most of the world’s human adults are lactose intolerant.”

If you are on a healing journey with breast cancer or want to prevent breast cancer – there are many powerful indications and reasons NOT to drink milk or use dairy products.

1. Bovine Growth Hormones

The hormones that are injected into the dairy cows to increase their milk production, increases the level of an insulin Growth Factor (IGF-1). There is much evidence that this may increase the potential for breast cancer since IGF-1 is a critical factor in cell growth for cancer cells.

2. Toxic residues

A 1988 FDA survey of milk samples from grocery stores in 10 cities found that 73 percent of the samples contained pesticide residues. (Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 1991;47)

3. Dioxin

In 2000, Steve Milloy, author of JunkScience.com and Dr. Michael Gough tested a sample of Ben and Jerry’s famous Vanilla Ice cream. Astoundingly, the level of dioxin in a single serving of the ice cream was 2000 times greater than the ‘virtually safe [daily] dose’ determined by the Environmental Protection Agency.

In fact, Dioxin is one of the most toxic chemicals on this planet and according to the EPA, there is no “safe” level. Dioxins are produced as a result of the many uses of industrial chlorine, such as waste incineration, pesticides and pulp and paper bleaching. According to the WHO, “dioxins interfere with hormones and cause cancer.”

4. Pasteurization

Pasteurization involves heating the milk at high temperatures in order to kill harmful bacteria. However, it also destroys the enzymes and many of the vitamins, and it denatures the protein, which makes it even more difficult to digest.

5. Homogenization

Homogenization involves forcing milk through a fine filter with high pressure and at high speed. This breaks down the fat particles in the milk and prevents them from floating to the top. When milk is homogenized, it creates the “XO” factor.

XO stands for the enzyme Xanthine Oxidase, which is released when the fat globules are compressed through the homogenization process. Over 40 years ago, scientific studies began to note the connection between XO and atherosclerosis, arthritis, diabetes, cancer and numerous other degenerative diseases.

6. Cancer

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology recognized that milk and dairy (among other food types) can increase the risk of prostate cancers and other types of cancer.

Regardless if the milk is raw or organic, this food is one that I would use only very sparingly. All other homogenized and pasteurized dairy products should be avoided in order to “do your body good.”

    right now, I am most concerned with the chemtrails I see more than ever. Everyone needs to watch the films called “What in the World Are They Spraying” and “Why in the World Are They Spraying” then forward them to everyone you know. Radiation is very much a certain danger for all of us, everywhere, but now the skies are filled with these poisons,like barium salts, aluminum and strontium…and God only knows what else.
    God help us all.

  • Joan Archibald

    Thank you for this startling information about milk. We grow up with the belief that drinking lots of milk will make us healthy. How is it that the FDA hasn’t learned of the dangers in drinking milk – especially if scientists have found that the enzyme Xanthine Oxidase is toxic and that is what we are ingesting when we drink milk. If this is true isn’t it criminal to allow on the market a product that produces toxins in those who drink it?

  • jackie

    what about the budwig diet – flax seed oil and cottage cheese? i’m in the budwig yahoo group and many people have reversed cancer and other chronic conditions using this. supposedly the mixture cancels out the negative properties of dairy. also sardinians (italy) are some of the longest lived people and they drink raw goat’s milk and eat raw cheese.

  • jackie

    by the way, besides the above consumption of dairy that i mentioned, i completely agree with this article. pasteurized homogenized hormonal factory farmed glow in the dark milk is toxic!!!!!

  • Serge Clement DIVAHE

    Which type of milk do you recommend which is suitable for human consumption? It is common knowledge that milk is a good source of Calcium.
    Please advise
    Regards
    Serge.

    I totally agree with the writer. Cancers feed on milk and sugar so it is best to stay away from them. What advice would you give on Soya milk and honey

    Raw milk from a reputable dairy or farm is a GREAT product for your immune system so I disagree with the last paragraph. And most Soy products are GMO, so don’t go there. Raw organic honey is excellent too, and will last forever without spoiling.

  • Ricky Walls

    Great article. We’d all be shocked to find out exactly how much of our food supply is tainted and over-looked due to greed.

    I am not sure about the manufacturing but I switched to Almond Milk years ago and have never looked back.

    Have read not-so-good reports on Soy milk. Especially for young boys.

  • Kelley

    @ Serge, your body really only absorbs about 30% of dairy calcium; vegetable sources are much more easily absorbed: beans, broccoli, arugula, to name a few. @ Jackie, goat’s milk is FAR better than cow’s milk, and raw milk and cheese are ideal and are still living foods. All the enzymes needed to digest it are still alive and present. Pasteurized milk is dead, and it doesn’t sour when left out; it rots.

  • mary gruss nurse practitioner

    I’ve known this since reading The China Study. Unfortunately, people get their information from mainstream media which supports corporate food. The human body is remarkably resilient up to a point. That is why we all don’t just drop dead with the intake of dairy, tobacco, alcohol, insecticides, chemicals and vaccines/pharmaceuticals. It’s the accumulation of assaults that kill us. Remove as much negative influence from your body. That’s all you can control

    what about yogurt and Kefir??

  • Dr. T.Bricker

    For at least thirty years in practice, my patients have been off dairy and gluten, as both are mucous forming foods, not to mention hormone fed animals, with implants behind the ear for quick weight conversion etc.,some of which have the possibility of actively inhibiting the enzymatic activity needed to adequately process food intake and break down, thereby jeopardizing the process of charging nutrients,causing the cross over of broken down nutrients (across the small intestinal membrane/wall)into the lymph,from there into the blood and ultimately to the cell,to be impaired. This end result has the potential of contributing to putrification and fermentation of undigested and unbroken down nutrients resulting in oxidation, leaky gut syndrome, antibody/antigen upheaval and more. All of the aforementioned have the very real possibility of potentially contributing to Mycotic Infiltrations, inflammatory processes, different states of gastric distresses,vitamin and mineral loss,cancer and more.

  • Dr. T.Bricker

    Jackie the curds in goat’s milk resemble those of mother’s breast milk. They are smaller and easier to break down, providing the person’s enzymatic activity is not impaired and the animal has been raised on organic feed w/o any type of chemical food enhancement.
    Hope this is helpful to you.
    Blessings
    Dr. Bricker

    Excellent comments mary gruss.
    Clinically there is a great deal of evidence substantiating your valid and truthful comments. Nice to have professionals, who think outside of the box…Good for you…Thank You!!!

  • Becky Beagles

    Rice milk and nut milks are good if the way they are made is natural and without preservatives. You can make your own to be on the safe side.

  • earl

    When our children were young, we had two wonderful Nubian milk goats that were a pleasure and kept us in raw milk and yogurt we made ourselves.
    ..Another thing people are not told about milk is that some cows are genetically modified and have human genes in them that produce human hormones in the milk and the milk is “cracked” similiar to the way crude oil is broken down to divide it into all of its industrial components, except with milk it is by freezing it to extract the various medicinal components, which of course makes the milk bring the milk industry priemium profits, then we are supposed to finish off the dregs of all this manipulation. It’s not even real milk!

  • Dr. Veronique

    Hi Jackie,
    The budwig diet would be an exception to the diary rule since the flax seed oil transform the cottage cheese into a very digestible nutrient. The many success stories over a 50 year period speaks for the power for the formula.

  • Dr. Veronique

    Dear Serge,
    I really don’t recommend dairy from a cow…if you do ingest it, it should be raw and whole. Goat’s milk is actually closer to Breast milk than cow’s milk and therefore makes it better for human consumption.
    Yo can get calcium from many raw nuts and green veggies and fish. The calcium from the cow’s milk is not digestible and causes problems with kidney stones and deposits in the joints.

  • Dr. Veronique

    Hi Irene,
    I am not a fan of soy milk unless it is fermented. Organic almond milk is my “milk” of choice. :>)
    If you are on a healing journey with cancer, I suggest NO sugars of any kind, except for occasional low glycemic fruits like green apples and a few berries.

    You are correct. The FDA are criminals.

    The use of all soy is BAD for the Thyroid. I agree with Dr. V in the choice of Organic Almond milk and will only add that you may consider Organic Coconut milk as the other only alternative. Either the Almond or the Coconut milk should be the unsweetened variety if you have any sugar issues, such as Cancer, Diabetes, or simply fighting weight gain. You may also strongly consider eliminating grains from your diet, especially wheat and all other grains containing gluten, if you are faced with any of the aforementioned challenges. You can pick up a copy of the books “Wheat Belly” or “Dangerous Grains” for more detailed information on the latter comment.

  • L. Paynter

    I am a German lady living in Texas since 12 years. Since then I’ve learned a lot about what’s going on with food that is actually killing people over here. Even the so called health food stores s.’Whole Food Market’ are not selling healthy foods but just about the same poisoning stuff as the supermarkets do.
    The drinking water over here is so toxic of chlorine and fluorides we are lucky to be still alive.

    How are all these toxins in the milk do have an influence on fermented products like Kefir and Natural Yoghurt? Does it make a difference if a milk product is fermented or is it just the same poisoning result after all?

  • Christine Burga

    Dr. Veronique, I want to follow you on twitter and post this on facebook. There is no “Share” button to share it on facebook, and I could not find you on FB.

  • Dr. T.Bricker

    I agree with you Dr. V! Org. almond milk is a good choice. Countless peer reviewed studies show that almond milk is a good choice, providing more absorbability and the type of Ca we require, providing there are no gastric difficulties, preventing the aforementioned from taking place. Thank you for your solid and accurate info.

    Blessings
    Dr. T.

    i rarely ever use it anyway, now this makes better sense why I never really liked it, though not lactose intolerant, just never tasted good.

  • Barbara

    Dr. V, how do you feel about organic yoghurt, and kefir? thank you.

  • Carol Crawford

    Absolutely AGREE!! A close relative, is a diehard milk drinker, and he suffers from a rare autoimmune disorder, severe rheumatoid arthritis, etc, etc, etc.! There is no telling this person about the facts on milk. He craves milk, animal meat, ice cream, etc. SO as a result, he is a sick man. For about 10 years, I have not drank any milk at all. However I do use very sparingly, high quality Greek Yogurt, Kefir, and a small amount of organic cream in coffee. I know for a fact that everyone in my world is sick. I am so relieved that I can really o without it and don’t need to struggle with the daily compulsion to drink alot of milk. I actually could do without the above products I consume, and I do believe that eventually I will not use them and when that happens, I’ll be considered a Vegan.

  • Marc Authier

    Milk today because of big ago businees cartel, is a completely denatured product. Do not drink milk. Limit milk to a strict minimum. It is not the milk your grandmother used to drink.
