  1. 1. He's going to ask for a glass of ORGANIC milk to go with it! PowerPoint By: Rachel H. Newman
  2. 2. Regular and organic* milk share no difference except for price and how the cows are raised (U.S. Department of Agriculture) Organic farming is also better for the environment *Developing in a manner analogous to the natural growth and evolution characteristic of living organisms; arising as a natural outgrowth. Source: Organic milk is the better product overall
  3. 3. 4 Reasons Why Organic is Better Fewer pesticide residues. More Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) Protects young children against asthma and eczema. More antioxidants.
  4. 4. Drinking Organic Milk Protects Young Children Against Asthma and Eczema. <ul><li>* Dr. Machteld Huber, study published in the British Journal of Nutrition </li></ul>Children were 1/3 less likely to suffer from allergies when breastfed from Mothers who ate only an organic diet (according to researchers) “ The difference was significant, but only for children exclusively eating organic dairy products. We didn't find a relationship if they had organic and conventional dairy products.” *
  5. 5. Organic Milk Has Fewer Pesticide Residues In 2004, the USDA Pesticide Data Program did a detailed study and found 2 fatal chemicals Insecticide carbofuran (pesticides) in 8.8% of the conventional milk samples Synthetic pyrethroids (pesticides) in 24% of conventional milk samples 0% of pesticides were found in the organic samples
  6. 6. Organic milk has more CLA Cows who grazed on pastures have 500% more CLA in their milk Conjugated Linoleic Acid ( CLA) increases metabolism, immunity, and muscle growth Reduces abdominal fat, cholesterol, and allergic reactions
  7. 7. Organic Milk Has More Antioxidants Important for eye health and effective in preventing numerous eye diseases Lutein and Zeaxanthin* (antioxidants) are 2 to 3 times more present in organic vs. non-organic milk *are carotenoids, meaning a natural colorant or pigment, found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, plus various fruits and corn.

  8. 8. Reason to Not Drink Organic Milk No set standards for organic milk, meaning no guarantee of purity or quality FTC ruled a manufacturer cannot make a &quot;no pesticide&quot; claim as it is untruthful, because pesticides are never added to milk or milk products Non-organic milk is cheaper Organic fed cows increase slaughter rates because no antibiotics are ever given, therefore killing cows more often
  9. 9. If All Else Fails… Drink Soy Milk
