The facts about Dairy:
- Dairy has been shown to be a leading cause in cancer, obesity, heart disease, asthma, and Type 1& Type 2 diabetes.
- Dairy produces an acidic reaction in the body that leaches calcium from the milk and from your bones. Increased acidity in your body = increased disease.
- (this explains why the countries that consume the most dairy, Scandinavia and the United States, have the largest rates of osteoporosis).
- Dairy is extremely mucus forming (ever get phlegm?) Mucus traps disease in our intestines and leads us towards disease.
- 3/4 of the world does not drink milk.
- Milk is LOADED with growth hormones and antibiotics.
- 1 in 3 cows gets mastitis- which means the machines that are hooked up to the udders breaks into the skin and causes blood and pus to enter the milk. This, ladies and gentleman is the main reason why milk is pasteurized.
- Pasteurized milk kills all the beneficial enzymes that your body requires to break down the milk. A lack of this enzyme causes bloating, gas, indigestion, and milk intolerance.
- The dairy industry has spent $180 billion attempting to convince us that "Milk Does a Body Good."
