Do you believe drinking milk is healthy? Think again.
Once more a multibillion-dollar industry has sold their myth to the American public.
No other species drinks milk beyond infancy except humans. No other species would drink the milk of a different species except humans.
For humans milk has been linked to heart disease, some cancers, diabetes and even osteoporosis, the very disease that the diary industry claims it is
supposed to prevent!
According to Harvard Medical School, the high animal-protein contents of milk actually causes calcium to be leached from the body. Countries with low
calcium intakes have lower incidences of hip fractures. (an indication of osteoporosis)
Milk is loaded with fat and cholesterol and contains an ever-increasing variety of pesticides and antibiotics fed to cows. You can get all the calcium
you need from the plant world. Beans, grain, tofu, and broccoli are all good sources.
