Transcript

  • 1. The Trouble with Dairy Calcium in the bloodstream is essential for health and plays an important role in blood clotting, heart rate maintenance, proper nerve function, and muscle contraction. 99% of calcium is stored in bones and teeth, and bones release the calcium into the body when needed. Many people are being told that dairy is one of the best sources of calcium, and that might not be true. There are many other excellent sources of calcium that minimize unhealthy side effects. By incorporating a plant based diet with a large variety of foods and eliminating processed foods, it is possible to attain more calcium then is actually necessary. For example, calcium can be found in leafy vegetables, beans, and chick peas. Man is the only mammal that continues to drink milk beyond the first year of life. Milk and dairy products from cows are meant to grow a calf into a 1000 pound animal rather quickly. Obviously, the average man or woman (weighing between 110-200 lbs) receives far more fat and other by-products from cow’s milk than are necessary. According to a health study, women who get protein from animal sources are three times more prone to hip fractures and bone loss than women who get protein from vegetable sources. Sensitivity toward dairy products may cause asthma. In addition, a milk allergy may also lead to bronchitis, sinusitis, frequent colds, ear infections, autoimmune disorders, and even behavioral problems. Apart from calcium and allergy issues, dairy products are also related to serious health concerns like:
  • 2. Heart disease – Dairy products contribute saturated fat and cholesterol to the body. Milk is rated second only to beef as the largest source of saturated fat. Diabetes – Some studies indicate that the intake of cow’s milk throughout the teen years can increase and be one of the risks of developing type 1 diabetes. Women's health issues – consumption of dairy products can be a factor in ovarian cancer, breast issues, fibroids, menstrual cramps, and recurrent vaginitis as well as other serious issues in women. Research and epidemiologic studies confirm that dairy products are not essential for the health of human beings. Nutrients found in dairy products can be obtained from plant foods or other sources with fewer side effects, and will reduce the risk of dairy-related diseases. ____________________________________________________________ ___________ Dr. Fred Bisci is an organic and raw food nutritionist with over 40 years of experience helping people improve longevity and reduce the risk of diet related illnesses.
